On the farm 2014
We first met in our late teens. So handsome! We stayed in touch off and on through the years. I will always remember his wit and that sparkle in his eye. He was one of a kind and I cannot believe that he is gone. My deepest condolences to the Weflen family. He will be missed by so many.

Another good cousin has left us. Many great memories with Norris as kids on the Weflen/Nesheim Farms. So glad we were related.

Norris was kind, handsome and had good wit. I decided he was ‘cool’ too when me and my ‘dweeby’ cousins, all of us at about 8 years old (to his 15 or so) thought we were SO clever to make ‘wine” with apple cider vinegar, sugar and water in the Weflens basement. Norris interviewed us about this (as he was on to our clandestine ways) but kept our confidence. He didn’t tease, snark, or tell. He was the original ‘cool’ dude! I’m so grateful I had the chance to visit with him in July 2022, picture below during the Olaf Bjaaland Tradition.

Saddened to learn Norris has passed away. I was stranded on an island with him once. That's something you don't easily forget.
