Yearbook companies suggest that parent quotes be heartfelt and focus on the student being honored. Walsworth Yearbooks suggests something personal and simple, such as "Thanks for the memories, Mike! Weﾒre looking forward to seeing what you are into next. Congratulations."
A parent's yearbook quote may reference something specific for which the parent is proud of their student. One example of this from Walsworth Yearbooks is "You endured a terrible loss at 7, but instead of being bitter and jealous of others, you became even more compassionate and loving." It is also appropriate to use humor if enjoyed by the family, as in the example "Seester, whatever you do, donﾒt sulk. You look like a pigeon.ﾔ
Parents may also use famous quotes that are meaningful to the student. For example, parents of one student in Norcross, Georgia, included a Bible verse for their daughter in their tribute.
