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.
Roxette fut un de mes groupes préférés des années 80, 90 et apres. Ce sont des tubes inoubliables qui ont marqué nos vies, et que j'écoute encore régulièrement. La voix de Marie restera à jamais dans nos coeurs et nos oreilles aussi généreuse qu'émouvante. Elle me rappellera les merveilleux moments à l'écouter et nos plus belles années...

I was introduced to Roxette by my parents listening to the joyride cassette on long road trips we each got to pick one and I always chose joyride. I know it's to late to make the book but I just wanted to share how much Marie and Roxette music meant to me I have a lot of favorites like Joyride, the big l, church of your heart, the look, listen to your heart, and many others but my favorite that was sung by Marie was almost unreal. It had helped me get through tough times in my life like losing my mother in 2014 who loved roxette. Then in 2018 i was diagnosed with congestive heart failure (the same my mom had) and had to have open heart surgery to install a device called adv LVAD to keep me alive and now currently awaiting a heart transplant for a new heart. Through good times Marie's beautiful voice has gotten me through alot and I still listen to her music. So thank you Marie and prayers go out to Marie's family at this time.

I’ve been a Roxette fan since about 88/89. I still haven’t adjusted to the fact that Marie has passed on. Her incredible voice was what made Roxette stand out when I first heard them all those years ago. She’ll never be forgotten. My heartfelt condolences to her family. May she rest in peace.

Estarás para sempre connosco porque as estrelas nunca morrem. Nunca serás esquecida e para sempre serás ouvida. Obrigado Marie.

La tierra a perdido una estrella, pero el cielo ha ganado una, nunca moriras del todo, siempre viviras en nuestros corazones y te recordaremos con una sonrisa en los labios.

Roxette's songs are with me all my life. I can't believe Maria is dead. I listen to songs, believing that we will meet again.

Immer wieder schön Lieder von Roxette zu hören und in Erinnerung an meine Jugend zu schwelgen. Erster Enger Tanz mit einem Mädchen, erster Kuss, erster Liebeskummer und immer war Roxette dabei.

My heart is still broken from the passing of Marie.
I live in the United States and I almost wore out my cds of Roxette driving in my car with the volume up as loud as possible! I will always love and listen to her beautiful voice and cherish the memories of the early year's of my life listening to Roxette.
Forever in my heart Marie. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Marie will never be forgotten. She's alive in every moment we listen to Roxette or we think of her. She made my life beautiful with her music since 1992 and she always will.
