Wine Tasting

Sometimes Guests come to ABODE and find just the right peace and comfort they need, and they relax and let go very quickly. Such was the case with Jamie. We only had her for a few days in August. During that time, she was surrounded by family and, of course, our amazing ABODE staff.

Jamie grew up in O’Donnell, Texas. Her claim to fame is that she was friends with the actor who played Hoss Cartwright on Bonanza – he was from O’Donnell, too.

Jamie’s son Pat (pictured here with his wife Carolyn) says his mom married his dad on a bet: “My dad bet this other guy $100 that he was going to marry her. And then he said to her, ‘You’re going to marry me, aren’t you?’ And she said, ‘I guess I have to now. I don’t want you to lose your $100!’”

Jamie’s sense of humor made her the “life of the party,” and she loved line dancing at Los Patios. We imagine she’s up there line dancing with Hoss right now. Blessings to Jamie and her family.
