Does everything mean ‘everything’?

God Bless the Jack Karches in our midst! EMT, chaplain, pastor! I can’t imagine a better combination for this day and age. What a thought-provoking essay, so much so that I ask for a sequel by Rev Karch. Regarding the last incident he mentions, I want to know how he would respond to those parents over their loss. As Christians, we know there is something better for us after death. But what if those parents in the last incident weren’t Christian? What would Chaplain Karch say to them? Does everything mean everything?
