Remembrance book for Marie Fredriksson
Dear fellow friends, dear fans of Marie Fredriksson, dear Roxette fans, dear kind people in this world,
our friend Marie has passed away on December 9, and many, many people in the world are heartbroken and would like to express their feelings. Not everyone can do so on the social media, not everyone can do so by coming to Sweden and signing the official remembrance book laid out in Stockholm.
We want to collect your thoughts, your grieve, but also your finest memories with Marie here. Please write down what you always wanted to say to her, we will collect each single entry of yours, put them into one single book and send it over to Marie’s family to show them how much she made this world better through you.
[All entries made before January 1, 2020 were taken over for the book. You will still be able to add your messages now but we cannot consider them for the book to Marie’s family anymore as it has been printed by now.]
The Daily Roxette had one copy of the book printed early January 2020 and handed it over to Marie Dimberg, Roxette’s manager and a very good friend of Marie Fredriksson and her family, in Göteborg on January 20, 2020. The printed version of the book is nearly 800 pages thick and it has a white cover. Its title “Tack för allt Marie” (Thank you for everything Marie) is written in silver and red letters on its sleeve.
Here you see some quick photos of the book, sadly there has never been a chance to take proper photos of this one copy as it arrived just before the evening we headed to Göteborg for the “En kväll för Marie Fredriksson” show.
If you are interested, you can download a simplified version (the printed version contains a few more blank pages to separate the chapters, for instance) of the book with all entries right here.
The entries are sorted alphabetically by names, this file is also searchable.
Entries with non-latin character sets are at the very end of the book. Most URLs have been removed as they make little sense in a printed book.

Пьер и Мари, вы лучшая музыкальная группа, которая в моём сердце с 1989 года, Мне больно осознавать то что Мари уже нет, но в сердцах людей она будет жить долго. Пьер, желаю тебе здоровья и творческих побед!
Marie & Per,
My kids will know your music and they will love Roxette as much as I did. You were my first band when I was a kid and you will be my band until my last day. RIP Marie!
Roxette forma parte de la memoria colectiva. En un mundo donde el arte pierde, por momentos, toda originalidad, recordar la música de Roxette es recordar la infancia, el primer amor, un mundo más libre y más sencillo. Adiós a Marie. Aunque nunca te olvidaremos. Tú y Per seguiréis aquí, por siempre, cuando todos nos hayamos marchado...
Obrigado Marie, as letras e melodias do Roxette personificadas por sua maravilhosa voz, marcaram a minha vida e de toda uma geração, felizmente pude vê-la cantando ao vivo. Nunca te esqueceremos.
Tack Marie, Roxettes texter och melodier personifierade av hennes underbara röst, har präglat mitt liv och en hel generation, lyckligtvis kunde jag se henne sjunga live. Vi kommer aldrig att glömma dig.
Творчество Мари и Roxette просто потрясает. Ваши песни навсегда останутся с нами. Спасибо Вам за это!
It is very sad, that such beautiful singer is not with us now. Her songs are the best and they will be best forever. Have no such words to describe, how i like her songs and music. Rest in peace beautiful Marie and thank you for your creation.

Песни, зовущие любить жизнь - настоящее искусство, мы как в зеркало смотрелись в них. Спасибо Мари и Roxette. Your songs are always in my heart.
1989 году услышал группу Роксетт. Исполнение песен Мэри это неописуемо нужно просто слушать и наслаждаться. Мэри и Пер друг друга дополняли - получился фантастический дуэт. Спасибо Перу Гессле и Мэри Фредриксон что исполняли отличные песни. Я был в шоке что Мэри отошла в мир иной. СПИ МЭРИ, ПУСТЬ ЗЕМЛЯ ТЕБЕ ПУХОМ.
We all owe you so much, for bringing the soul into our lives, in a manner that only you know how. Nice clean timeless music, The goto music to bring us back to normality. Miss you two so much. Thank you for everything, you guide us and make us smile even in the dark. I really hope you are in peace in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you x
When I think about Marie and Per, I think about super heroes.. you literally rescued me in my most lonely and difficult years in my younger days.. the world around me was falling on me.. and right at the moment when I thought I couldn’t keep going.. there they were.. my Look Sharp and Joyride cassettes.. They will block everything around me and your voices became my oasis.. My escape.. and I knew that somehow everything was going to be Ok! Thank you for being a really important part in the soundtrack of my life. Though I have never met you, the connection I have through your music makes me feel love and gratitude to you both. My heart really hurt when I heard about Marie’s passing.. I never had the chance to see you perform live.. but I have sang clapped and sang along watching all your concerts on video. I have all your CDs and vinyls.. and of course.. my cassettes.. they are a treasure to me. Rest my sweet Marie and I hope the heavens will let you receive all the love we your fans have for you. Thank you for the Joyride!. Always in my heart! -J.
As time pass by I realize.. I will never forget you, never stop missing the comfort you gave with your voice. Thx again for everything ❤️.
I love music more than anything in the world. Thus, I love Marie's voice and contributions to music.
Music Heaven is getting crowded with the likes of Marie.
RIP, MARIE, and of course I still hear you here.
From the first song that I heard from Roxette I was hooked. The group's vocals and just sheer happiness to make beautiful music made my teen years awesome. THANK YOU!!!!
U & Marie made the concert hall at both Sydney Australia and Adelaide South Australia rock and U with Marie glow. Sadly it has to be said that " it must have been love but it's over now." The ride just like a "joyride' and to that playing the drums for U guys in 97 was "almost unreal". But per listen to ur heart before you tell her goodbye".
Your voice and joy of music entered my heart when I was just a boy. Now with children of my own, it is wonderful to share my love for your music with them. I will remember you with fondness and you will be remembered by generations to come. Thank you.
Marie you always stay in my heart. Your voice Marie was amazing and still is when I listing Roxette songs. I’ll always remember. Thank you.
Marie was a truly talented and wonderful heartfelt singer and i enjoyed immensely the concerts I was able to attend here in Australia. I am saddened not only by her loss but also that I will not be able ever again to experience the magic of listening to and seeing her and Per perform in person. Together you were amazing and thoroughly entertaining and I will always treasure those concerts I was privileged to be at and I will sadly miss her beautiful vocals that I know came from a truly beautiful person and soul but I also know that she will be sadly missed by all that loved her music but missed even more deeply by those that knew and loved her for the special person I believed her to be
Marie was a wonderful singer, bringing pleasure to millions. May she rest in peace and entertain all of those in heaven with her.
Så saknad du är. Kommer aldrig någonsin glömma dig. Lyssnar på din musik och blir lycklig samtidigt som hjärtat brister. Din underbara röst.. den kommer att finnas hos oss för alltid, men det gör ont att DU inte är kvar här hos oss längre. Måtte du ha det bra var du än är. Saknar dig för evigt..
Marie, you were entirely captivating. Your voice transported us to memories of love and loss that are warm and friendly. Thank You
