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.

Thank 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.

For 30 years her voice was with me, through good and bad, with all my emotions in life. I am sad today, knowing that I will never have a chance to hear her voice live. You will live forever with your songs, my sons sing them with me and many more children will sing them in future.

From the minute I first heard "The Look", in 1989 I was a fan of Roxette. The music, and Marie's voice became the soundtrack to my life. Through the good and the bad, the boring and the fun, the music was there. When Roxette came to Seattle in 2000, I did all I could to be in attendance. I got autographs, and thanked both Marie and Per. When they returned in 2012, my wife and I flew to San Francisco to see one of the best concerts of my life. Hearing Good Karma, and seeing her in the videos brought me so much joy. Today I have been crying. The world has lost a treasure. Thank you for sharing her talent with us. My heart crys for you, who knew her. She was a bright light of joy in this world.

Mit teenage værelse var overplastret med Roxette plakater fra slutningen af 80erne til midt 90erne, jeg havde alle cd'er med Roxette og enkelte plader, bl.a looksharp og joyride. Maries smukke stemme og generelt Roxette's musik har siden været en stor del af den musik jeg lyttede til, og vil fortsat være det resten af mit liv. Marie har virkelig sat sit præg på verden, og vil i mange generationer frem i tiden, stadig blive hørt. Hun vil blive savnet og jeg mener ikke hun havde fortjent alt det hun har været igennem, jeg begræder tabet. Hvil i fred Marie. ♥️ Din musik lever videre i os.

Dearest Marie, I fell in love with Roxette when I was about 15. I saw you live in 1994 and 2012 and both times you came to talk to us fans and have pics. You literally saved my life with your words so I can’t thank you enough! You got me through tough times and I hope these words help your family through tough times too. You were a true fighter and musical legend. I have pictures with you and signed goodies that I will treasure forever. I even took a massive promo board from a HMV shop and carried it through town ?. You will always be in my heart and I’ll keep singing your songs forever. Thank you, Marie for being with me most of my life. I love you like family and I give my love to your family to help them when things get tough. I miss you so much already and always will. Keep singing beautiful ❤️ Love to you all, Laura xxx

Although I got to know Roxette, like many people, when they burst onto the scene with 'The look' and subsequent hit singles, I got to know Marie Fredriksson's voice and music seriously when I picked up a copy of her solo album 'Den ständiga resan' in 1993. Entirely in Swedish, a language that I didn't know or understand, but the artwork spoke to me and when I played the album, the music did too. This album, and the next 'I en tid som vår', became part of my life, making me curious about this remarkable woman and this strange language. I even took a Swedish language course (with limited success, unfortunately!) in an effort to understand these lyrics better. I grew up with music ever since I was a kid, but there are only a few artists that have been able to capture a moment in time that stays with me for life. I can't claim to know Marie personally but it is astonishing how her voice and music can touch so many people worldwide. So many people loved her - but most importantly her family did and always will. I hope it may be some comfort that so many people mourn along with you. She had a remarkable life.

Que decir, que dificil... conozco a la banda desde mis 11 años y tengo 38, hoy mi tía me manda un whatsapp contandome que escucho esta triste noticia y no lo podia creer!! ella para mi es mi idola desde siempre su humildad, su voz dulce sus ganas de vivir sus fuerzas para con la enfermedad, su energia en el escenario siempre viviran en mi corazon; estoy muy triste y me imagino ustedes su familia. Quiero darles mi energia y fuerza en este triste momento y que sepan que estan acompañados por todos los fans de Roxette que somos muchos en todo el mundo porque Marie genero eso en todo el mundo amor por que lo que ella sabia hacer y hacia muy bien que era cantar. Gracias por cuidar de ella en su ultimo momento, seguro ahora ya es un angel en la vida de ustedes para siempre y que siempre los va a cuidar. Me hubiera gustado conocerla de forma personal pero la distancia y la vida no siempre logra uno hablar con sus idolos, una vez la salude por instagran le pregunte como estaba que no se sabia nada de ella, jamas supe si lo vio pero me tranquilizo saber que le escribi y que tal vez mi mensaje positivo le hubiera llegado... Hoy simplemente le digo adios a la mas grande de los grandes y que siempre vivirá en mi corazon y en la musica que nos dejo. Ojala puedan leerlo lo escribi en Español ya que no se en Ingles. Un abrazo grande a toda la familia y a Per en estos dificiles momentos, desde aqui desde Buenos Aires, Argentina una humilde fan de siempre!! Analia.

I became a huge fan of Marie and Roxette after i saw them in concert with my mom in high school in Mesa, Arizona during the Join the Joyride tour. Later I flew to Sweden to see them in Stockholm and Gothenburg where I had the opportunity to meet Marie and Per in person - this was the Room Service Tour. Through Roxette I made friends and bonded with my mom (who loved them as much as I did). Later I went with my mom to see Roxette in San Francisco on their anniversary tour. I have always particularly struck by Marie: her style, her voice and her energy, which to me appeared to be particularly kind and giving to those around her. I don't know what she was really like, as I didn't see her day to day but nonetheless I admired her and was inspired by the energy and art she put out in the world. She made my life better and continues to do so through the music and the memories she contributed to for me and so many others.

The first cassette I’ve bought, the first concert I’ve visited, followed by so many more. I grew up with the music from Roxette. All my family loved and still loves the songs and Marie’s voice. A great artist, singer, songwriter and a beautiful soul has left this earth to shine bright in the sky. Marie will certainly be missed by many. You will always be in my heart, Marie. Love always ❤️. Never is a long time...

My dream as a kid was to sing with you Marie, on the stage. Spending my time. Eventually we will meet and sing.

Marie, sua doce voz foi o embalo da minha vida. Me fez sonhar. Não cheguei a conhece-la pessoalmente mas me sentia como se fizesse parte da minha vida. Sonhei muitas vezes com ela. Sua beleza e energia ficaram sempre em minha memória. Sem duvida a melhor cantora que já existiu.

Es ist so Wahnsinnig Schmerzhaft, das Marie von uns gegangen ist ? 30 Jahre Lang hat sie mich mit ihrer Musik Begleitet und Begeistert. Ihre Stimme war Einzigartig, Stark und Gefühlvoll... Ich liebte die Show an den Konzerten und ihre Energie. Ich Vermisse Marie Wahnsinnig. Ich wünsche der Familie viel Kraft, diesen Verlust zu Verarbeiten und alles gute ???????? Moe ?? ?

I am so sad with the news of Marie's passing. Love to her family. She truly will continue to be the best company to play loud in my car stereo. So many hard times would have been so much harder without her music. Love and light for you all. Thank you, Marie Fredriksson, for your talent and your music.
