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.

Marie foi e sempre será minha musa a mulher que com sua voz me fez muitas vezes chorar de emoçao a mesma que quando veio ao Brasil me proporcionou um dos momentos mais sensacionais da minha vida vê-la no palco cantando fecho os olhos e a vejo é assim que vou me lembrar dela uma mulher forte determinada que não se curvou as adversidades mas as enfrentou e nos deu a maior lição de vida lutar sempre. Obrigado Marie te amo

June 6th 2012. Jubilee Day and my wife Ann Forster had her second kidney transplant. And ever since Queen of the Rain has been my "Ann" song. Marie Fredrickson who sang it so beautifully passed away today. I mourn her loss as much as that of my wife ♥️😢

Dear Marie, I cannot imagine this world without you. So many special memories since I became a fan in 1992. First it was Roxette, then your solo albums which grew on me in such a special way. Then I saw you play live several times and I had the chance to meet you in person and, oh what an amazing, warm and kind person you are. You treated your fans with so much love. I remember each and every moment as if it was yesterday. 1994, 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2001. I could speak for hours and hours to explain all my memories and I would always do it with a smile, because all you made me feel is nothing but happiness. I want to say thank you for everything. You will remain in my heart forever. Love, Xavi

- Marie's voice and music was there when my mother died at age 40 and i was just 14. - Marie's voice and music was there when i was depressed for years because i missed my mother so much. - Marie's voice and music was there when i was pregnant and i could feel my baby move. - Marie's voice and music was there when my son was born. - Marie's voice and music was there when i got diagnosed with the same disease as my mother. - Marie's voice, music and strenght was there when i needed the strenght to fight and she always will be there Marie will forever be a big part of my life and i thank her so much for that. My heart cries and i can't stop I can only hope that people who don't understand the hurting of losing of a wonderfull soul like her, can one day enjoy music the way i do. I wish al the best for Mikael who has been such a hero for years. . And i wish al the best for Josefin and Oscar for losing their beloved mother. Take care of each other.

I remember queueing for the first concert, and the last one you had in London. A cold winter’s day in December 2015 and I met you in Sthm at NK Store. A voice that won’t be forgotten, an epic lady. Let’s hope a lasting tribute is made... Music brings so many people together from all over the world and Marie’s impact will last on. tack så mycket... There's a time for the good in life, a time to kill the pain in life, dream about the sun you queen of rain.....

Dear Mary, You were the tune of my life since I was 12. I saw you 3 times in Barcelona and I will always remember the last concert, being you sat in a chair but giving us the best. It was a fantastic event. Wherever you go, your voice and your music will be by my side. You'll be here inside. Thank for existing. Albert

Your music saw me through my teens And helped me day by day Your words made so much sense to me In every single way. I loved you through my twenties And cried with you through each song For every single heartbreak Your track helped me go on. My thirties brought bad news when We heard you'd fallen ill I made a promise to see you sing London 02 was a thrill Today I'm in my 40s And the news just made me weep Heaven gained a beautiful angel With a voice so pure and sweet Fly high with the Angel's Marie. My Idol, and a truly beautiful soul.

I am 34 years old and I grew up listening Roxette songs. I am a huge fan since I was born. Your music always was in important moments of my life, when I was in my English lessons we listened the songs to practise pronunciation. When I am sad I listen your music, when I am happy too. When I commute to work. Always you are with me. When in 2012 was announced you were performing in my city in the second was announced I was there buying my ticket. I will remember you Marie how I saw you that day. Happy cheerful even you were sick. You shone that day! God bless you! X

I was 9 the first time I fell in love with Marie. I remember the exact moment I listened to "Spending my time" and, even withouth speaking English, I knew that was special. I started following Roxette after that song, I wanted to learn English because of that song and because of her voice. 27 years later Marie is still one of the most important people of my life and the reason why I fell in love with music. Now I have a daughter, she is almost 3, and she listens to Roxette often, she loves it as much as me. I don't have words to describe how I feel today or how I will feel for the rest of my life. I was lucky enough to meet Marie in Madrid and I cried so hard that she came to give me a big hug.. I will never forget that moment or her voice.. I will love her forever

Thanks to you,Marie, I have the best childhood.memories, with my dad driving his car, placing the cassette on the car radio so we can both listen to Roxette. He was the one that introduced me to your amazing band. That was back in Lima, Peru, where I'm originally from. Even though our English was basically non existent we still tried to sing the songs, it didn't matter at the end, because we both enjoyed it! I live in Sydney now, and I was SOOOO LUCKY to see you live a few years ago not only once but twice! I just couldn't get enough of you and decided to go to the 2 shows you were doing in the city, in a way, I knew it was going to be the first and last time I see you. So thank you...thank you so much for creating beautiful memories, for your voice, for your existence. You will never be forgotten, you will always have a place in the heart of each of us that loved your music. Thank you.

I am really sad today but i will always remember the times i saw Maria live on stage. She had a fantastic and unique voice (you could always say if it's her voice or not if you heard a song) And Roxette has meant a lot to me in the last 25 years of my life. So thanks for the great songs and all the fun i had while listening to them. My condolences to Maries famliy and her friends who will surely miss her. As a fan i still have the chance to listen to her voice and i am sure she will not be forgotten anytime soon. She left her imprint on this world and she touched the hearts of millions of people So Thanks and R:I:P Marie!
