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, you and Roxette, were my youth, I play your songs everyday to remind me age is only a number, and death a statistic. You will slways be alive in our hearts. I'm sure you will be singing with the angels. R.I.P
Dear Marie, family and friends
I'm so deep sad that we lost this wonderful person.
She was my idol at the beginning of my life. She spreads so many power, her eyes was always sparkling and her voice touched so many hearts.
I need a long time after this bad news, for hear any song of you. Always if the radio played a song of you, I turn it off. My heart is broken, you are gone.
But I have to say thank you for all you give.
Without your music my world would be a little more empty.
And I believe one day, we see us soon.
In lovely memories I say goodbye
I dont know how to write down what i feel.
I hear your Music since i was 16. You impressed me deep inside.
You helped me thru hard times, whitout even knowing me.
I saw you several times - you never knew me
You an Per are the reason, why i lerned to play guitar
Now im 45 and you are gone - leaving some Kind of hole in my life
I cant explain this...
Drahá Marie! Děkuji Vám i Perovi za všechny krásné písně.Vždy rozjasní můj den a zlepší náladu.Jste a budete stále v mém srdci.
Merci pour ta musique et tous les bons souvenirs que tu laisses derrière toi. Tu as fait partie de ma vie et je suis triste aujourd'hui mais comme on dit: "Le spectacle doit continuer." Vive la Suède
Thank you for your music and all the good souvenirs that you let behind you. You have been a part of my life and I'm sad today but as we said, "the show must go on". Lânge leve Sveriges
It's strange, but I - the 46-year old men still cry for you. I still often listen to your music and miss you. Things will never be the same. Rest in peace Marie. Thank you for all.
You will be missed greatly. Sing with the angels. xo
Liebe Marie! Du hast mich durch die schwersten und schönsten Zeiten begleitet, mit deiner Stimme. Du hast mich bei meinem ersten Liebeskummer gerettet und auch noch bei allen anderen, die noch kamen . Du warst mein Anker in der Jugend und auch noch als ich 40 war.
Danke für alles und alles Gute, wo immer du jetzt auch immer bist.
In dankbarer Liebe
Markus B. aus Wien
Drága Marie! ♥️
Köszönöm a lélekemelő pillanatokat! A dalaitok mindig menedéket jelentettek nekem, amiket a te csodálatos hangod és az elbüvölő kisugárzásod tett örökre felejthetetlenné! Mindig csodálattal és szeretettel emlékezem rád!
Dear Marie and Per,you both were the soundtrack of my lite from my early age till now. Your music your personality your talent and kindness touched deeply my heart. Your music has been with me in those great and dark moments that I went through in life and surely it will all my life. The day I saw the news Marie's pass away it was a very sad day and kept for a long wondering why such amazing woman left us so soon. I was really sad and still am. It was like a part of me and a part of my life left away eventhough I had just one opportunity to see taste and enjoy a live concert in madrid years ago. I did not value that time such opportunity as I value now and I frequently try to get back in time to that live concert to bring about such feelings when listened your voice and music so close, so alive, so fresh and amazing. I keep my admiration and devotion not only for your music but also your talent and your great character. Thank you for so much, thank you to colour my life,to bring about so many nice feelings from inside, to paint my world with your music. Things will never be the same. Love
Für mich war Sie ein Musikalischer Engel. Ihre Wunderschönen Balladen werden Marie nie in Vergessenheit geraten lassen. Es ist so Traurig - immer noch. Irgendwie kann man es nicht verstehen, dass Sie nicht mehr da ist. ❤ Crash Boom Bang..... ❤

Dear Mary, you will remain in my heart forever. Your beautiful voice, friendly nature, beautiful smile, catchy and amazing hits (thank you to Mr.Per G.) are all associated with Roxette and I believe that P.G. will continue as Roxette. Memories will remain and they are just the most beautiful ❤️ Thank you for everything.
thank you marie for all of your wonderful songs and for bringing such joy to my life. Rest in peace and i will never forget you.
I miss you already. I hate that I never got to meet you in person or see you live in concert but your music meant so much to me. Thank you for making me smile when nothing else could.
Thank you for all the good memories.I attended 2 of your concerts in Johannesburg and both were great, you will be missed, R.I.P

I would like to thank you for bringing joy to my life!

RIP. MARIE FREDRIKSSON. O Mundo te Ama. Até um dia Marie. És um Anjo no Céu. Te Amo .
The first time I have ever heard Marie's angelic voice was in 2003. I was immediately awestruck by the rhythm and lyrics of "It Must Have Been Love" . I was very lucky to have gone to Roxette's concert hosted at Hong Kong in 2012. Never have I thought that would be the last time Marie sang in front of me. May Marie's voice live forever in everyone's memory.
