Param D. Johnson, 21

YOGAVILLE, May 5 – Param D. Johnson, 21, resident of Yogaville, in Buckingham County, passed from the body into the embrace of the Divine on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 after a month-long illness.

Due to cerebral palsy, Param was nonverbal, but the depth that radiated from his smile and sparkling eyes conveyed unconditional love to everyone he met. Throughout his life he shared his genuine regard for one and all with a gentle demeanor that brought joy and warmth in abundance. His parents' lives were truly blessed in being the caregivers for such a special soul. His loving nature is beyond words.

He is survived by his father, Atman Johnson; grandparents, Bob and Nancy Peterson; two brothers, twin David Dutton and older brother, Matthew Dutton and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

A memorial service will be held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, May 9 on the grounds of Yogaville. All friends, relatives and acquaintances are invited to join in the memorial of life of our dearly beloved son and brother.

May his radiance continue to shine abundantly on us all.

Donations in Param's name will be used to serve those in need and those with special needs.

Hill and Wood Funeral Home, Charlottesville, served the family.
