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.

I'm 14, I only discovered Roxette in 2019 and I listen to their music every day. I love Per and Marie so much, whom I miss so much and will never forget.

I grew up listening to the music of Roxette, always enjoying the anthemic tunes, stunning music videos and of course the unmistakably brilliant voice of Marie. I grow more in love with this music over the years, always drawn back to the classics and the new tunes, discovering and re-discovering Roxette has been a great personal joy, the quality is so strong. Thank you Per for your music. Thank you Marie for your magic. I don’t want to be sad simply celebrate your contributions. I am proud this music is part of the soundtrack to my own life, helping, soothing and inspiring me to strive. 🎤🎸❤️🔥 🙏

Rest in peace, dear Marie! Your music made me happy in my youth. It is still in my heart and always will be.

These were my favorite songs, brings tons of childhood memories! It's been 3 years since you passed! Still jamming these songs in my Car, thank you for everything! r.i.p.

Estimada Marie i estimat Per.... que puc dir... Ja fa temps que vas marxar d'aquest món Mari, per marxar a un lloc que espero sigui agradable i bonic com tu et mereixes. La teva veu incomparable em va captivar quan jo tenia uns 15 anys i era un adolescent escoltant els vostres albums (joyride, Tourism,...) Encara recordo el primer dia que us vaig veure per la televisió espanyola on vareu presenta la cançó Dangerous. Aquell dia us vaig descobrir i em vau captivar fins ara. Ara no para d'escoltar en bucle Let your hearth dancing with me i no paro de veure el video de les vostres aventures pel món portant llum i felicitat. Una pèrdua irreparable.
Fins sempre Marie! Espero veure't cantar un altre cop quan arribi la meva hora.

Marie will live forever in my heart!
I remember the first time I listened in the radio the songs "Spending my time" and "Listen to your heart" in that little town Iturbe hidden in Paraguay, and with those songs I just decided to learn English, and since there Roxette has been my favorite band.
There's no a day that I don't listen at least one song to remember her.

Marie querida, cuanta falta hace en el mundo tu voz y tu música. Fuiste la mejor junto a Per, es una banda que vivirá por siempre en mi corazón y que me evoca los mejores recuerdos de mi juventud.
Roxette por siempre.

Had the great pleasure of seeing you in 2012 in Montreal. Though you were frail, you shone like the sun.
May your soul now be blessed as your songs blessed the life of so many. May you know abundance and love.
may you know no limits now. No pain, no worry.
May ease be with you.
May angels surround you , and may your incredible smile continue to touch souls as rays of the sun.
Bless you Marie.

Querida Marie, Goodbye to you,
Me dolió y duele mucho tu partida, me parece Almost Unreal, nunca tuve la suerte de asistir a un concierto de Roxette, siempre albergue la secreta ilusión de algún día poder asistir a un con cierto vuestro, pero esta claro que ya no se podrá.
Me mantengo y mantendré fiel al dúo que marco mi juventud, alegra mis días tristes y de soledad, llevándome por un Joyride, pero se que things will never be the same.
She Doesn't Live Here Anymore, estoy seguro que desde el cielo se encuentra Dressed For Success y de alguna u otra manera seguir deleitándonos con su maravillosa voz.
Un Roxettero que te llevara siempre The Centre Of The Heart ya que tu eres y seras mi Queen of rain.

From the first time I heard The Look I became a Roxette fan for life, l had the pleasure of seeing them perform in Nashville Tennessee on their acoustic tour back in 2001 my wife and II were in the front of the stage and there they were Per & Marie right in front of us ,it was one of the greatest nights of my life at one point Marie looked down and waved right at us that was truly magical. When I found out about Maries sickness it broke my heart after everything she went through she still gave all she could such an amazing person an inspiration.. you will always be missed and you will never be forgotten thanx for all the wonderful music & memories.

Dear Marie, it was autumn 1991, I was 14 and the only one who liked Roxette at the time. Your Joyride Tour just started and I HAD to go! It was supposed to be my very first concert and since it sold out quickly, I bought my ticket (500 Schilling) on the black market. At that time we showed touch/enthusiasm, with lighters, cell phone flashlights are not the same. In the early 90's, I didn't even own a camera. What remains for me are the memories of your energy and charisma. I was touched and smitten. It was a Friday (my favorite day), October 25th, 1991 in Vienna, Austria. Alone for the first gig of my life? Yes, if you sing, you're welcome to come back anytime. Now that I'm 45, I often go to concerts alone, but the first one, with you, is and remains incomparable.

Marie, hermosa, cuánto te extraño. Me llena tu sonrisa, pero siempre voy a lamentarme no haber podido asistir a un concierto de Roxette que tanto amo desde 1989. Tengo la esperanza de encontrarte en el Cielo hermosa Marie y cantarle juntas a nuestro Dios. Te extraño mucho!
Marie, vackra, vad jag saknar dig. Ditt leende fyller mig, men jag kommer alltid att ångra att jag inte kunde gå på en Roxette-konsert som jag har älskat så mycket sedan 1989. Jag hoppas få träffa dig i himlen, vackra Marie, och sjunga tillsammans till vår Gud. Jag saknar dig så mycket!

Dear Marie, the only thing I will regret until the day I die is that I never made it to attend a Roxette live concert. But your music is part of my life since the moment I was born. Thank you!

I consider Roxette to be the greatest duo the world has ever known or will know. I have all the recordings and pictures of Marie and Perr but mostly Marie. She truly was the most talented female entertainer in history. Marie was not pretty or cute she represented true beauty. She didnt give up nor did her fans give her up but both continued to the end. She is not forgotten and never will be because her works live on after her. She was the most special person I have ever known.

Although I was only a few years younger than Marie and Per, I really discovered Roxette too late. I only knew them for the most famous songs. It is only a few years ago that I really discovered the talent and skill of Marie and Per, an exceptional duo. I listen to their songs every day, they make me feel good. I always follow Per but I also really miss Marie a lot.

Marie marcó mi vida, junto a Per, desde muy joven. Per era composición, Marie voz... Una voz que siempre acompañará. Siempre. Hay muy pocas cantantes con la capacidad de transmitir como ella. La vida no es sencilla, ni bella (lo extraño es el día que piensas que ha sido así), pero con buena compañía se lleva mejor. Music save my life.

The first time I listened to a Roxette song was in 1990. I was 29 years old. Now after more than 30 years I'm still listening to your songs and each time I feel sad, but still enjoy the music that reminds me of you and all those years.
I miss you Marie! I miss you Roxette.
You'll be always in my heart.
