Marie, you were and are loved more than words can describe. I've seen you and Per on stage in Sweden and elsewhere over the years, I loved listening to your music and although I never had the chance to tell you, there are thousands of us, perhaps millions, who will always be grateful for how your songs would console us, give us hope, and uplift us during our time of need. Your music still does this every single day. Thank you for this and all of the wonderful times and wonderful memories that you gave and made possible for me and so many others around the world.

My heart goes out to Marie's family, to her husband, to her children, to Per Gessle, and to each of her closest friends. May each of you find comfort and peace in knowing that she is in a better place now and not suffering or having to fight anymore for another day. Marie loved you all with her whole heart, and she always will. We will always love her, too.

Something that might make you smile a little is knowing that Heaven's music just got a whole lot better. :)

Per said that things will never be the same, and he's right. Marie and Per were Roxette, and without Marie, that legacy rests in peace now as well. But please, talk to the angels and let us keep Per for at least a little while longer. :) There will be an eternity to collaborate more later. :)

We were lucky and grateful that you shared your gifts with us and painted your love all over our world. You will always be missed.

I am confident that your children will grow up to be wonderful people in the world, and with your husband's guidance, I am quite sure of it. I hope they make you even more proud than they already do, and that you will watch over them and help them with their endeavors in life.

Thanks for the music and for everything you did, Marie. You're the best and we will love you always.
Rest in peace

Its a great loss and the most saddest news. Roxette was one of my favorite bands in the 90's during our School days even now I dont forget to listen to the unforgettable songs done by Roxette. There is no Roxette without Marie and no one can replace the unique voice of her, The songs Roxette done will never fade away. My deepest sympathies to Maries family her husband and two children. Lets pray for her soul to rest in peace in a place surrounded by music, peace & harmony. Peace and Love... Anuradha Nirmal Dissanayake from Sri Lanka.
