What was the significance of the hearse driver in Lost??

I believe the Hearse driver is representative of the implications of the scene he is in. He is driving the protagonist's parents to go see Dr. Liebnitz the physician. Arnold's life seems to be hanging by a thread for most of the novel. He exists only as a picture, and the novel intends to bring him to life through detection, and forensic explanation. Every time they take a test, or reveal parts of themselves they could be killing Arnold, or Foundling 2307 whichever he is. So the Hearse driver represents that possibility, that they are going to witness their son Arnold's death.

Hopefully that was helpful.
