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.

Marie and Roxette was the band in my youth, the first kiss, the first dance and many many happy memories live on. Thanks to you Marie! Thank you for the wonderful time that I think back after more than 25 years and will accompany me until the end of my life.
She had the finest voice. There will never be another like her.
Thank you Marie for every thing you did for music. You will allways be in my heart. I am so sad.... but I know you are in better place now. Roxette has been my fuel to move forward in life. RIp Marie!
So sad to hear Marie passed away. I have been in love with the music of Roxette since I was a teenagers. Over the years, always kept listening to it and loving it... and will continue to do so.
ПОМНИМ, ЛЮБИМ, СКОРБИМ
Your music has played a major role in my life. Strength to all relatives.
Thank you for the greatest melodic music you made. I'am sad, never can see you live again. Heros of my teenage-time. Your music will live forever im my heart.

You will always be the great love of my life.
Wherever you are, I hope you have found peace and a lot of music. Wherever you are, your great voice fills everything. I did not know you in life, but from the first second I fell in love, you have always seemed to me a magnificent artist ... as much as your partner Per remains, two great, two enormous, two brilliant stars. In the future, when my candle goes out, and I also have to leave, I would like to land close to you, to meet you and to continue listening to you sing for all eternity. Always live in our hearts, always Marie, always "Soul". Kisses from the heart.
Saknaden släpper inte taget, du fattas oss hela tiden. Har så svårt att förstå att du är borta. En del av mig kommer nog att sörja dig för resten av mitt liv. Älskade Marie, jag önskar dig all frid och ro och hoppas samtidigt att du rockar röven av alla däruppe! Tänker på dig och din familj väldigt ofta.
Музыка моего детства, музыка уходящей эпохи... Мари была потрясающим человеком. Спасибо за частичку счастливой юности, в которую я каждый раз возвращаюсь, слушая эти песни.
Listen to your heart...
I have been here many times before, just reading the entries, unsure of what I should say. Feeling sad about losing you. Losing Roxette. Your music, your voice and your spirit will live on.
thanks for the music marie. may you ever walk in beauty
Wish I could Fly!... Ahora vuelas alto, hacia los cielos. Gracias por la musica, Fuiste una persona muy cálida con el público chileno. Hace unas semanas me compré el DVD: Travelling the World Live 2012! y el famoso coro de It must have been love, que ya tiene la marca registrada original chilena. Y tu disfrutabas mucho ese coro.
Mis condolencias a Per y a la familia de Marie! Love!!
Величайшая группа, Мари - несравненная вокалистка. Олицетворение целой эпохи. До сих пор часто слушаю их произведения и не перестаю восхищаться талантом. Спасибо за все потрясающие эмоции, которые дарят ваши песни и будут дарить ещё многие годы.
Thank you for the joy you were giving us for all the amazing years and decades. You became a jewel in the world's music history and the sunshine in the daily life of millions of us. Also you became such a great and very kind person. I can never forget - I will keep in mind all the memories and your voice will stay with us each and every next day...!
Thank you for all the beautiful music you gave me and the world. You are part of the soundtrack of my life. I had the honor to see you perform live during the Crash Boom Bang tour. What an amazing performance you gave together with Per. Your voice will always be around. In my house or somewhere else in the world. Things will never be the same thanks to you. Walter
