ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of Nila Said. We will remember and love her forever.

The first time I met Nila, I noticed two things about her first. Her hair and her smile. Her hair was so thick, long and beautiful and from there on I would always ask her tips on how to grow my hair. As a matter of fact, I started my natural hair journey after meeting Nila and she was always willing to give me advice anytime I would ask her and so I say thank you Nila, it truly meant so much to me.

Nila's smile was so infectious and she was always smiling. A smile so beautiful naturally makes you smile and Nila possessed that ability. Even when she would frown it was always followed by a smile which would lead to laughter.

It hurts that you left us so soon but the wonderful memories you left us will remain forever. God bless you Nila and rest in eternal peace.
Love Nour

Nila said- the most lovely person I met , a sister to me , a friend to me and the best person I could of ever meet, so kind, so caring and yet so funny . I thank her for ever moment of support when I was going through struggles , she was there for me and there for my best of friend Johan , who both of the people I love dearly have built such love and good moments , the journey was always being there for Johan and Nila, I looked up to both as brothers and sisters and I will never forget every moment and laugh I have with Nila, she told me to be confident to be strong and to be me. I will never forget every word and moment I had with my friend And my sister nila , and this poem to describe her and my friend with Johan as well :

Not so long ago, the journey of life
became hard and difficult,
My troubled mind made the waters
seem too deep and stormy,
a weakened spirit made the hills
feel steep and hard to climb,
a weary heart made the paths
seem long and endless.
And the land of hope, joy and peace
became distant and impossible to reach.

Then that special person entered our lives
took control of our journey,
with her kindness, her patience and her love.
And like an Angel, on her wings
she guided me through the waters
which gradually became shallow and calm,
on her wings she carried me up through the hills
and they became easier to climb,
on her wings she took me along the paths
and they were long and endless no more.
And now the land of hope, joy and peace,
though still some distance away,
seems to be within reach again.
She was the angel ,
She was our light.

God bless Nila said and I will never break my promise , I will always be there for her and her loved ones .

Nobody embodied the spirit of our college years better than Nila. She was studious sometimes and funny always. Without her, those years would have been a drag.

Wishing everyone the strength to endure this incredibly difficult time. I think we will see her again but until then, her kindness, humour and friendship will be sorely missed.

My interaction with Nila wasn’t for very long at university but she was such a lovely, friendly and good hearted person. I was devastated to find out about her untimely passing. I hope her family and friends are staying strong in these strange circumstances. I am truly saddened by this news and hope everyone can reach out to a loved one to remind them and yourselves how much you care about them. Rest in power Nila x

Nila was one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.
She gave me great and/or comforting advice on any topic and would always introduce me to new things she was excited about.
She also loved to test out whatever beauty related thing she was learning on my face lol! We loved to shop, primarily what our post-uni meet ups were for.
But I mostly loved Nila because she loved what she loved and was unapologetic about it (including sushi unfortunately for me), she was the cutest savage.
I'm so proud of all that she went on to accomplish after uni, whilst being the best mum. It was a pleasure to do life with her and I will miss her immeasurably.

Love you loads Nila Nils

Nila was an extraordinary person. It was easy to have an ongoing conversation with her and find common interests that we shared. I will always be grateful for her acts of kindness. A loving mother, a selfless friend, a caring daughter and a courageous sister. She will be forever remembered in our hearts always. May she rest in eternal peace.

She was amazing, funny and always bubbly. She could always light up the whole room, with her energy.

Nila, you have shown me what it means to truly be a good person. I told you we were bound by fate - you can't escape the never-ending supply of Twisters (Kiwi centre) you promised me. Here or in the next life, I'll have what is owed...

You left an immense mark on my life and I thank God I was able to know you as a friend, as my lover and the mother of my child. I love you more than I can say. I'll see you soon Muni x.

I’m sorry...

Shared by Samia Ahmed on April 18, 2021
I’m sorry I didn’t message enough or call enough or visit you enough. You were my closest friend and yet I didn’t see enough of you. Nila I enjoyed spending time with you so much, that I regret not making the time to do this more often. I just assumed we had time, time to make more memories and to grow old together and for our future kids to play with one another. We have been friends for 14 years and even if we hadn’t seen each other in months it would feel like we had just seen each other yesterday, that’s how comfortable I felt around you, that we can just pick up from wherever and be okay, you never held any grudges or felt any type of way if my communication wasn’t great because you had such a big heart Nila, you were so kind and genuine and never had a problem with anyone ever (maybe just Nara when she would touch your things, but that’s it) I loved it when me you and Nara would go out and back then when I had worn my hair curly, I would pretend I was your sisters too. It had made me so happy that we had started hanging out properly again and it was becoming our little ritual where we would hang out on the weekends and now it’s come to an end so suddenly. I failed you in that sense and I’m sorry to have taken you and our friendship for granted. I love you Nila Pila and I will cherish all the memories that we had created together.

Our last message

Shared by Samia Ahmed on April 18, 2021
Just to let you know Nila, Samara and Opal finally met today if you recall our last message to one another was that we will do a play date for Opal and my niece Samara, it breaks my heart that you weren’t here to witness it but I feel comfort that I was able to fulfil something that we had said we would do, by the way they got on like a house on fire, they were making slime together and they were playing roblox, and it made me happy that they got on, I will make sure that I continue to keep them in touch so a friendship can blossom between them.

The birth of Opal

Shared by Samia Ahmed on April 18, 2021
Nila this is the day I saw allll of you, although I wasn’t in the birthing room, I had come right after to meet Opal and to be honest looking back all I remember was pretty much seeing all of your body, and you literally could not care less, this made me laugh because normally you were so shy with your body even though you had such a banging body. You were so strong that day, and still so joyful even though you went through an intense labour you still had that massive smile on your face and I just thought wow, Nila Pila is a mum now, the first in our friendship group to become a mum, remember how we would always guess who would be second and we always said yeah Sufia will be next. That day you became a mother to Opal, you became a mother to us all, literally started treating us all as kids, but it was your calling, you were so good at being the caring mother of the group always telling me that everything will be okay, with that gentle voice of yours, even now when I feel sad and cry about what’s happened, I just think of you saying to me Samia it is okay, everything will be okay.
