H - Honest, H - Hard-playing, H - Humble

R - Rambunctious

S - Strong-willed, S - Supportive

Yes, Dill is very respectful.  He also has a keen sense of what is right and what is wrong. He has been through adversity (no father, being passed off to his aunt by his mom) and doesn't feel sorry for himself.  Even though he creates stories about his fictional father, he is honest where it counts.
