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.

Thank 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.

Dearest Marie, dear Roxers, tears can´t stop falling, I´m in the state of shock... hon finns inte mer hos oss..... Her life disappered, ett liv försvann... leaving us with emptiness and so much pain... Still I will forever be thankful to her, for being there, singing for us with her fantastic voice, for all the lines in her songs which made me learn Swedish long long time ago, for discovering the city of my dreams... Stockholm - thank to the Fading video, since then Sweden has become my real second home... I will always remember first time meeting her in person, talking to this wonderful woman, like a friend I have known since long, while she asked after a while, oh, you speak Swedish, why? I answered: Because of you... and that´s the true..... Another dream come true was to see Marie perform in Swedish during her solo tour in 2014, in Stockholm of course.... I admired her for the way she treated us, for all the fantastic, never ever forgettable songs which made the soundtrack of my life since the first time I heard The Big L on MTV... that was 1991.... nowadays I´m considered being one of the biggest Roxers in our country - Czech republic - and even did some TV when Rox came back in 2009..... Thank to Marie... I got so many friends, we discovered a fantastic Rox revival band with our singer Zuza, well.... nobody knows what the future brings now, just I know it´s gonna hurt so much to listen to the songs again, live... and knowing Marie is gone... I just miss words, writing out of my heart, filled with pain... these lines go to her wonderful family, Micke and her children, stay strong, together, you have loved her and kept her alive and helped her fighting... until this day.. I´m sure she will stay with you... and she will also stay with us forever in the wonderful songs, we can only say now...... we love you Marie, we will admire your forever....... ETT TACK will never be enough........ but it´s the word I need to say, sincerely deeply from the bottom of my heart..... You were and remain the best, the idol of my life,forever!

Marie fue para mi un referente, fue una luchadora, fue una inspiración. Me apoye en su música, en su voz, durante momentos felices y otros no tan felices. Desde pequeña me enamore de Roxette, me acompaño a lo largo de mi vida. A mis amigos y amigas les trasnmiti mi pasión por ellos. También a mi marido, que es mi pareja desde hace 23 años, desde mis 18 añitos escucho su música a su lado. Roxette es mi vida, Marie a puesto voz a los mejores momentos de mi vida, cada canción esta unida a momentos bonito de ella, pero también a momentos duros, muy duros de mi enfermedad, cuando no tenía salida, cuando la lágrima era lo más fácil, cuando solo su música lograba calmar mi dolor, mi angustia, cuando muy joven no daban nada por mi........... Ahora con 41 años, le doy las gracias por tanto, le doy las gracias por haber llorado conmigo, haber reído conmigo, haberme dado fuerzas para seguir. Marie, eras, eres y serás la más grande en mi corazón. GRACIAS por hacernos sentir, soñar y vivir. DEP Marie....... Love You forever ❤🖤 Sonia

Roxette will always hold a special place in my heart. They gave me the best friend that anyone could ever hope for. All because of our shared love of Roxette. That is thanks to the wonderfully talented Marie, and of course Per. I had the pleasure of seeing them live three times. My best friend and I even travelled all the way to London from Scotland to see them when Marie made her comeback. They were literally the only band I would travel great distances to see. Marie had a special voice with a great range. From happy upbeat songs to soft, sensual songs. Marie, Per and Roxette will forever hold a special place in my heart. To take a leaf out of a fellow Swede band. Thank you for the music. Rest in peace Marie

Had the privilidge of seeing Roxette in concert several times. The last time being when Marie could barely stand. She had such strength. Her voice was part of so many memories in so many places. She will always live on through her beautiful voice. Thoughts and prayers are with her family and her friends. Thank you for the music Marie xx

I know, I have to write and express myself in english but It’s hard now... I feel sad, with tears in my eyes. Someone can say, she was only a singer, but not for me, not for many of us... people can’t understand how we feel in this moment... we lost a special person, a strong and sweet woman with an angelic voice... The first time I saw her, it was 1991, I was a child, 7 years old... my first music cassette, joyride... I loved the sound, her voice, her picture... I grew up, always the same dream, meet her once, see her live... 2002 she was hill, my dream? I never thought it can be realise one day... Later, a miracle... she was back on stage! I remember the first time I met her, we were in Bucharest (Romania), her birthday’s day... we were waiting for her in front of the hotel just for singing “happy birthday”... she was tired but... stayed with us, pictures, talking, half hour? Maybe more? She was so sweet with all of us... I met her again, in Hannover (Germany)... and in other cities around the world... I realise many dreams thanks to her... I saw her in California ... in Europe... I travelled around Sweden... best memories and now? She’s gone... forever... every time I hear her voice now, I gotta remember she’s not between us anyone and it hurts... she was a part of my dreams.... I feel your pain cause it’s ours too (maybe in a different way but we are close to you)... Love & hugs Marie, RIP you will be the best angel in heaven, sing there with your beautiful voice... you were and you’ll be forever in our hearts... we will never forget you, our hero.

Having to say goodbye to the wonderful, generous and warm hearted Marie is a hard blow. She will never know how instrumental she was in our household. As Roxette, their influence was only matched by ABBA. Music was always being played, during chores, going on road trips, during moving days and cookie baking days. They were a part of it. Marie was a part of it. Even during chemo sessions, Mum and I played their music. I've continued to play Roxette, not just because it's beautiful and amazing, but because it's helped me to feel closer to Mum. Tonight my heart has a few new tears in what is an already tattered vessel this year. We will miss you, Marie. We love you and thank you for your music and ability to make us feel everything you so passionately conveyed in your songs.

Marie had such a positive impact on my life. Roxette songs were my only joy in times of sorrow, depression, and loneliness. Her voice kept me from going into even darker places. In many ways, Roxette saved me. I am proud to say I will always be a Roxette fan, and Marie will continue being an inspiration for me, for her talent, her strength, her determination. I will miss you forever Marie, but the joyride will continue in our hearts. THANK YOU for giving me so much — my condolences to Marie´s family and beloved ones.

Marie, your voice was of an angel and now your soul has joined your voice in heaven. I still remember when you blew me a kiss at Sheffield Arena on the Joyride Tour. Losing you has broken my heart but your Voice will keep me going and your music will go as things will go on and one day when i get married your voice will be part of the first dance. Love Mark x x

For 32 years you have been the soundtrack of my life! When times were bad you got me through them, when times were happy you made it happier! The sadness I feel for me, the world, your beautiful family and friends is tremendous. Your legacy will live on forever. Music will never be the same. With all my heart I wish you peace now your suffering is over. The sky has a beautiful new star and I hope you continue to sing with that beautiful voice forever more. RIP Marie Fredriksson. You will be missed so so much. Much love forever.
