Everything My Daddy Taught Me is a collection of poems, riddles, life lessons, stories, and memories as passed down from the memory of one daughter of her father. The book is prefaced with a 3part foreword from 3 of his daughters-affectionately known as the "Gurley Girls." The book is a way to honor the legacy of Fred Gurley Jr and reclaim the space that he occupied on this Earth. His words and memories will last years beyond his physical prescence. As you thumb through the pages, you are asked to reflect on the lineage of your own ancestors and to ruminate on all they have given you in lessons. Honor the space between what was and what is to come. In the end, everything my daddy taught me is being shared with you.
