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.

I have shed many tears with some of their songs, but also have sang my heart out to them too. So much so, my 9 year old son absolutely loves How Do U Do. Thank u so so much for the music xx

Having to say goodbye to the wonderful, generous and warm hearted Marie is a hard blow. She will never know how instrumental she was in our household. As Roxette, their influence was only matched by ABBA. Music was always being played, during chores, going on road trips, during moving days and cookie baking days. They were a part of it. Marie was a part of it. Even during chemo sessions, Mum and I played their music. I've continued to play Roxette, not just because it's beautiful and amazing, but because it's helped me to feel closer to Mum. Tonight my heart has a few new tears in what is an already tattered vessel this year. We will miss you, Marie. We love you and thank you for your music and ability to make us feel everything you so passionately conveyed in your songs.

Marie had such a positive impact on my life. Roxette songs were my only joy in times of sorrow, depression, and loneliness. Her voice kept me from going into even darker places. In many ways, Roxette saved me. I am proud to say I will always be a Roxette fan, and Marie will continue being an inspiration for me, for her talent, her strength, her determination. I will miss you forever Marie, but the joyride will continue in our hearts. THANK YOU for giving me so much — my condolences to Marie´s family and beloved ones.

Marie, your voice was of an angel and now your soul has joined your voice in heaven. I still remember when you blew me a kiss at Sheffield Arena on the Joyride Tour. Losing you has broken my heart but your Voice will keep me going and your music will go as things will go on and one day when i get married your voice will be part of the first dance. Love Mark x x

For 32 years you have been the soundtrack of my life! When times were bad you got me through them, when times were happy you made it happier! The sadness I feel for me, the world, your beautiful family and friends is tremendous. Your legacy will live on forever. Music will never be the same. With all my heart I wish you peace now your suffering is over. The sky has a beautiful new star and I hope you continue to sing with that beautiful voice forever more. RIP Marie Fredriksson.

The best memories of my childhood / adolescense years have Roxette as soundtrack. I have attended the 2 shows they gave in Montevideo, Uruguay and for sure, both were amazing experiences. Rest in peace Marie, we would never forget you. Your sweet voice will remain in our memories and hearts.

Marie foi e sempre será minha musa a mulher que com sua voz me fez muitas vezes chorar de emoçao a mesma que quando veio ao Brasil me proporcionou um dos momentos mais sensacionais da minha vida vê-la no palco cantando fecho os olhos e a vejo é assim que vou me lembrar dela uma mulher forte determinada que não se curvou as adversidades mas as enfrentou e nos deu a maior lição de vida lutar sempre. Obrigado Marie te amo

June 6th 2012. Jubilee Day and my wife Ann Forster had her second kidney transplant. And ever since Queen of the Rain has been my "Ann" song. Marie Fredrickson who sang it so beautifully passed away today. I mourn her loss as much as that of my wife ♥️?

Dear Marie, I cannot imagine this world without you. So many special memories since I became a fan in 1992. First it was Roxette, then your solo albums which grew on me in such a special way. Then I saw you play live several times and I had the chance to meet you in person and, oh what an amazing, warm and kind person you are. You treated your fans with so much love. I remember each and every moment as if it was yesterday. 1994, 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2001. I could speak for hours and hours to explain all my memories and I would always do it with a smile, because all you made me feel is nothing but happiness. I want to say thank you for everything. You will remain in my heart forever. Love, Xavi

- Marie's voice and music was there when my mother died at age 40 and i was just 14. - Marie's voice and music was there when i was depressed for years because i missed my mother so much. - Marie's voice and music was there when i was pregnant and i could feel my baby move. - Marie's voice and music was there when my son was born. - Marie's voice and music was there when i got diagnosed with the same disease as my mother. - Marie's voice, music and strenght was there when i needed the strenght to fight and she always will be there Marie will forever be a big part of my life and i thank her so much for that. My heart cries and i can't stop I can only hope that people who don't understand the hurting of losing of a wonderfull soul like her, can one day enjoy music the way i do. I wish al the best for Mikael who has been such a hero for years. . And i wish al the best for Josefin and Oscar for losing their beloved mother. Take care of each other.

I remember queueing for the first concert, and the last one you had in London. A cold winter’s day in December 2015 and I met you in Sthm at NK Store. A voice that won’t be forgotten, an epic lady. Let’s hope a lasting tribute is made... Music brings so many people together from all over the world and Marie’s impact will last on. tack så mycket... There's a time for the good in life, a time to kill the pain in life, dream about the sun you queen of rain.....

Dear Mary, You were the tune of my life since I was 12. I saw you 3 times in Barcelona and I will always remember the last concert, being you sat in a chair but giving us the best. It was a fantastic event. Wherever you go, your voice and your music will be by my side. You'll be here inside. Thank for existing. Albert

Your music saw me through my teens And helped me day by day Your words made so much sense to me In every single way. I loved you through my twenties And cried with you through each song For every single heartbreak Your track helped me go on. My thirties brought bad news when We heard you'd fallen ill I made a promise to see you sing London 02 was a thrill Today I'm in my 40s And the news just made me weep Heaven gained a beautiful angel With a voice so pure and sweet Fly high with the Angel's Marie. My Idol, and a truly beautiful soul.
