Even a sceptic, who can see nothing but a travesty of bitter truth in anything holy or emotional, would have been melted to the heart had he seen that little group of loving and devoted friends kneeling round that stricken and sorrowing lady; or heard the tender passion of her husband’s voice, as in tones so broken with emotion that often he had to pause.

– Bram Stoker

Dracula, Chapter 25. Mina asks the men that they kill her when the time comes and she is transformed into a vampire. She also gets her veru emotional husband Jonathan to read her burial service to her while still alive, which he does in a broken voice. Dr. Seward describes the strong emotions this evokes in the group of loving friends.
