John Piper's Dad Died

Matt posted about this and now I do. I write now with tear stained eyes after reading Pipe's post about his fathers passing. Wow, I pray that at the end of our time together Levi can the same stuff about me as John Piper has said about his dad:

Thank you, Daddy. Thank you for sixty-one years of faithfulness to me. I am simply looking into his face now. Thank you. You were a good father. You never put me down. Discipline, yes. Spankings, yes. But you never scorned me. You never treated me with contempt. You never spoke of my future with hopelessness in your voice. You believed God’s hand was on me. You approved of my ministry. You prayed for me. Everyday. That may be the biggest change in these new days: Daddy is no longer praying for me.
