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.

My wife and I shared our love of roxette, until she passed in July 88. Over the years, Roxette playing on the radio always reminded me of the love of my life. My heart was broken to learn of Marie's tumor and today i first learned of her her death. RIP

Thanks, Marie for the gift of your music, your voice and your artistry, which filled my years as a teenager and even after then. Thanks for giving a voice, along with Per Gessle to some of my experiences and feeling as I started to peer into life as an adult. Your music will always be part of my life and my memories. Rest in peace, surrounded by celestial light.
Gracias Marie por todo lo que nos hiciste sentir, marcaste unos años muy importantes de nuestras vidas, siempre vuelvo al pasado con tu música, con tus canciones y tu voz, siempre estarás con nosotros. Gracias Marie.
1989. I was 11 and I loved that girl's voice singing that "yeah-yeah-yeah"-intro on Dressed for Success. From those days on, Roxette became sort of the soundtrack of my teenage and early adult life.
Marie's superb voice was warm, familial, conforting...
Marie, you are cherished by a huge army of roxers, and in our hearts you will always be alive.
Rest in peace, queen of rain!
