The reader knows already that Dede is the only one left, and that she is telling the story to the interviewer. This is repetitive foreshadowing since it does not reveal any new information but shows the emotional power of the events in Dede’s mind. Dede acutely feels a sense of isolation from her dead sisters and regret for being the only one to tell their story.
