Frida – A friend I never knew

Posted in Personal with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2014 by Tallee Savage

fridaThese past couple of months I have thought a lot about a girl called Frida Hagdahl. She was a friend but I did not know her. She was what you call an ”acquaintance”. I met her at the most 10 times. At my friend Lotta Fischer Levén’s bachelorette party, at Lotta and Mats’ wedding in 2010, at festivals, KGB (the club in Stockholm she co-owned together with Hokan Pettersson and Fredde Lindberg) etc. She made a solid impression back then: Energetic, happy, funny, charming, kind, curious and cool. Knowing me, I would have embraced her and her friendship right there, because those are the kind of people who I like to have in my life. But for some reason time flew by and we never got closer than that. Last week I went to her funeral at the St Matteus Church. She had been struggling for six months with incurable lung cancer that quickly spread to her bones and finally her head. March 8 she departed this transitory life and entered upon an eternal sabbath of rest, only 36 years old.

She wrote a very sincere and detailed blog about her journey. FridaKGB Blogg>> It made me burst into tears many times… How she could seem so calm, organized and so honest about everything… knowing her days were counted. She was so ill and yet seemed so full of life. It felt incomprehensible with no way to really relate to what she was going through. I mean how do you deal with knowledge like that? I heard and saw the sadness in all our mutual friends and often thought about her family and relatives. Their pain… How unbearable the grief and anguish must have been and how tremendously they must miss her today :(

Last week, Thursday March 3, I decided to go to her funeral. I was little confused about whether it was proper or not to go to the funeral of someone you did not know so well. But close friends of Frida, said that I should go, to support them and pay my respects. It was absolutely beautiful. I have never seen som many people in a funeral ever. You could tell right away this person had made an impact on many lives and a summary from the priest and all her friends gave me a clear picture that I had really missed out. I should have known her better as she was clearly one of those unique persons that you refer to as a ”keeper”. Anyway, it felt really good to be there among friends and all the humble love that was in the air. Beautiful music was performed by Mats Levén and Mia Coldheart and time stood still for a while leaving no eyes dry. My condolence to her family and boyfriend, friends and colleagues. R.I.P Frida

I lost my father, my aunt Alicia and my good friend Rigmor Malmsten in a way to early age to this despicable disease – Earth life closed – My friend Ludde Lindström has just been through a tough surgery after receiving the grim news of kidney cancer. We are all hoping the cancer stays the hell away and that he recovers well. Please support and feel the commitment for this organization or any other project that helps us get a step closer to finding cures for cancer, to achieve a higher survival rate and a reduction in the incidence of cancer, as we all, without exceptions are somehow affected in many ways sometime in life… one way or another. tallee-sign

ROCK ON

The.Blacklist@Café Opera

It is cold in Sweden right now. You can either sit home in front of the fireplace and sip hot chocolate OR go to a club and get warm together with some good friends, chill with a cold one and listen to some ass-kicking rock ‘n’ roll.

The Blacklist is a fine rock club that appears on different locations and is run by Jonas Danielsson, a good friend of ours. Here are some of the pictures I took those nights.

…..

November 6th, Bonafide (Pontus Snibb) was on the menu. Good old school heavy rock ‘n’ roll. A couple of weeks later Pontus’ sweetheart Mia Coldheart,  frontwoman and guitar player of Crucified Barbara did us the honor.


Beautiful Mia Coldheart of Crucified Barbara. I have seen them live many times. Love them every time. Hope to do a project with them soon  :)

The Scams (Daniel Kvist) also played on December 2 –  My husband Matt and I just enjoying the evening at the posh bar and restaurant Café Opera in center Stockholm.
