Character Traits: Devoted, Loving, Fortunate

Devoted: "If, when I hint to you of a Home that is before us, where I will be true to you with all my duty and with all my faithful service, I bring back the remembrance of a Home long desolate, while your poor heart pined away, weep for it, weep for it!" (Dickens 53).

(Dickens 53).

He had gradually dropped to the floor, and lay there in a lethargy, worn out. She had nestled down with him, that his head might lie upon her arm; and her hair dropping over him curtained him from the light" (Dickens 54).
