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.

A part of my childhood died with you.
Thank you for the lyrics, the music and the insipiration. What a voice! Thank you for helping me SURVIVE my teenage years. You have accompanied my most beautiful memories!
Our paths only crossed 3 times during your short life: Wembley arena (London 1996), Virgin store (NYC 2000) and Rogers arena (Vancouver 2012).
RIP Marie Fredriksson. "Things will never be the same"; you are the "Queen of Rain"??

So many teenage memories are associated with Marie Fredriksson’s vocals... I along with many others shed quite a few tears when you walked out on stage at Rod laver Arena back in 2015, what we saw that night was pure inspiration, determination, resilience... So frail, vulnerable yet so strong.
Today we shed those tears again and we celebrate everything you have given us, thank you.

Thank you Marie for the idol, which has fascinated and strengthened me for years. For the many concerts that I was able to experience with you. The highlight of four concerts in a week and a personal meeting in Zurich was incredible. Thank you for inspiring me to learn Swedish and make the many trips to Sweden to meet you there. Thank you also for the many touching moments with your music and the incredible energy your fans have been able to receive. When I saw you again a few years ago at the little Scheidegg, I realized how big your fight had to be to be on stage. Yesterday I saw our photos and had a strange feeling. Today I read the sad news that you got wings. RIP Marie Fredriksson, will always carry you in the heart ? # mariefredriksson

Unforgettable moments, THANK YOU!
Best memory will be the 2015-concert in Amsterdam; my 6-yr old daughter was there as well, loving your songs and performance.
Things will never be the same!
All the best for your family, friends and especially Per.

Amazing talent, grew up in the 80s listing to Roxette my favourite band. Only a week ago my husband put both look sharp and joy ride on my memory stick, been listing to these albums for the last past days forgot how good they were. Marie will be such a sad loss to many but remembered by millions all over the globe. ❤❤

Marie era minha referência, comecei a apreciar suas belas canções com apenas 10 anos de idade. Hoje tenho 43 anos. Estou arrasada, mas sei que ela foi pra um lugar bom cheio de luz , e p mais importante, ela nunca vai sair dos meus pensamentos. Te amo Marie.

Such a voice, such a performer, such an amazing band. A soundtrack to my life...Look Sharp, taped from one of my sister's friends cassette back in 1989; Listening to Joyride on cassette on my Walkman on my European trip with tech back in 1991; Blasting Centre Of The Heart with Noel, Nikki and Stuart in the Lincoln Navigator on our Canada trip in 2007; Striking up a special friendship with Joe in MVG in Asda, chatting about how amazing Roxette were, and looking forward to the Charm School comeback back in 2011....Was a dream come true to actually see Roxette live in Manchester back in July 2012. Don't bore us get to the chorus...RIP Marie, gone too soon ?
