We are in Nathan's home ward, in Paul. The Emerson 2nd family. We are so very sorry for your loss, as we too loved this special young man, husband, father, son, friend. Truly a celebration in heaven as he was one of our Heavenly Father's finest.
Nathan was such a friend to all. A bright spot, and he loved the gospel, and was a wonderful missionary. He carried the keys. It was a pleasure knowing him.
May the Lord comfort your family.

Dear Neiwert Family,
I am so sorry to hear about the death in your family. I wish I could find words that would relieve your pain, but I cannot imagine what they are. Losing someone close to you is one of the saddest life experiences possible, and words of true comfort are difficult to find. I remember when we were kids that we called Nathan the Chicken Farmer. My mind has slipped and it never was that strong anyway. But, I remember that Nathan was raising chickens that summer. Todd Zeller and I would tease him about being a chicken farmer. He was a great kid and it looks like he was a good man. My memory of him will be that he was always fun and pleasant to be around.
Please know that I am thinking of you in your sorrow. You have my sincere condolences. I have recently moved from Idaho Falls to Utah or I would be there with your family.
Greg and Pari Edgar
If only words could express the sorrow that we feel.
Nathan was such a wonderful husband and father, Cora told me that Laura was so excited for her Daddy to come home at night. He always worked so very hard for his family and never let an excuse prevent him from reaching his goals and providing for his family. Your marriage was an example to me of supporting each other.
Please know we want to help and that we love you and Laura.
Pari & Greg and family (with a big hug from Cora)
