Ask an abused person if he/she loves his/her abuser, and they might say, "I do not like (the person) at all, but I do love (him/her) because we're family."
I agree. I think there might be something there because they were the only people who were his family before he was introduced to the magical community. However, I don't think he'll miss them that much once he's gone. If one of them died, I'm sure he'd be more than upset, but certainly not as upset as he was when DD or Sirius or even Cedric died.

Because all it takes is a ready mind, a steady heart, and a determined attitude.
