On October 27th, 2012 our lives were shattered by the loss of our beautiful little boy, Richard Edwin-Ehmer Specht (Rees).  In order to help put back the pieces and ensure that his spirit endures perpetually, we have started ReesSpecht Life as a reminder to all that the simplest things done for others can have the greatest impact.  We want to change the way we treat each other, one piece at a time.  ReesSpecht your family, ReesSpecht your friends, ReesSpecht complete strangers… ReesSpecht Life!  Thank you for your support!
