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.

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!
Мари ❤️. Вечная ей память, она единственная и неповторимая, спасибо за музыку! Она навсегда останется в наших сердцах! I love mari, eternal memory, thank you for the music, you will always remain in our hearts!
Still missing you Marie. Roxette was my favourite band when I was little. I would play your songs taped off the radio over and over. I’m so glad I got to see you in concert years later. Thank you for the music and the memories.
O caminho é difícil para todos nós, mas vocês conseguiram sempre o alegrar o meu coração nos bons e nos maus momentos da minha vida pois cresci a escutar os lindos temas que a vossa banda de excelência sempre fizeram com amor ,é uma perda enorme a Marie mas o caminho continua espero poder assistis a um concerto e realizar o meu sonho de criança . que Deus abençoe todos voçes, lindas musicas viram e os Roxette para sempre serão o Nº1 top.
Spending My time.....❤время прошло ты будешь вечно в наших сердцах.....😔
Dear Marie, My twin sister and I can't thank you enough for your music.
We first listened to the album, Crash! Boom! Bang!, when we were 12 years old.
Although we didn’t understand any single word of English then, we instantly fell in love with your voice and Per's music so much. We have listened to Roxette ever since. I mean our life can't be told without you, Marie. Thank you again. R.I.P.
I first heard Roxette in 7th grade when I began listening to the radio. They were the first tape I bought, and one of the first CD's. Roxette was my first favorite band, and 30 years later still remains one of my favorite, but with a very special place in my heart. My kids and I sing Roxette songs in the car all the time. I just learned today of Marie's passing, and its been very hard to accept. I was actually looking to see if they were still touring. I'm sad that I'll never see Roxette in concert. Thank you for the amazing music and making the world a better place.
they were a perfect example that friendship between men and woman could exist. RIP MARIE YOU'LL BE NEVER FORGOTTEN "SHE'S GOT THE LOOK"
Dear Marie .now you can day hello ti my num .your voice was ,Is and Will be One of best voices of all times .kisses Charlie horn player
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!
