“When my life is over, and my body is cold and still,
do not grieve for me, because it was God’s will.
All my suffering will be over, every trial and every test.
When God has called and I have answered, do not weep for I will be at rest.
When you pass to view my body, remember it is just a house of clay,
God has built for me a mansion and I have moved away.”
Hussin Bin Said was born in Brooklyn, New York on January 30, 1958, to the late Alma and Amin B Said. He passed away peacefully in his sleep on June 26, 2021, at home in Newport News, Va.
He was employed at Eastern State Hospital for nineteen years and was the family’s mechanic for over forty years.
Hussin fulfilled every role in his life to perfection. He was the epitome of a loving husband, a devoted father, and a grandfather. He loved and supported everyone, being the best friend, we all needed and loved. He dedicated his life to helping others and expected nothing in return. He will forever be in our hearts and his love will forever empower us to be our greatest selves.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Hydea, and brother, Ahmed.
Hussin is survived by his beloved wife of thirty years Kim Said and the beautiful family they raised together, three sons; James, Hussin Jr., and Elijah; two daughters, Renita and Sharidah. He is also survived by thirteen grandchildren; brothers, Mohammed and Ali; sisters, Hybea and Sadie; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives.
