Forty-ish, black female speaker, complaining about her forty-ish cousin's child:

"Her [the cousin's] sister have _awared_ me on numerous of occasions
that [the cousin's son] Deontae always be in some kind of trouble."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
