Drew —

Michelle’s been by my side — and I’ve been at hers — for nearly 20 years now.

She’s comforted me on tough days and given me inspiration. She’s done so much to raise our two beautiful girls. She’s an incredible leader — and both my wife and my best friend.

I know you appreciate her, too — so will you join me in wishing her a happy Mother’s Day?

You can’t add a personal message — while Michelle treasures you, she doesn’t want to hear from you.
