So many thousands of people have found solace in our Sanctuary... this place brings joy and healing, quiet reflection, and reconnection with the earth and the heavens above. Most leave only footprints, some choose to leave their ashes to join again with the land. Sometimes, families gather under our sacred sky to say goodbye and to remember their love for each other.
This page is a place to leave your message, in the virtual world, about how Sanctuary Cove serves as a forever memory. For those who have hiked our trials, volunteered, been wed, or just stopped for a moment to breathe the air, this is a place to honor and remember them.
Please consider a donation, if you can, in honor of your loved one, and send a photo and bio for inclusion in this page. Email the Caretaker at email@example.com for questions or to submit.

Devoted, cherished, and loving Mother, Nana, Wife, Sister and Friend Mary Helen Quintana began a long and deserved rest at the age of 73. Born and raised in Tucson as the youngest of 11 to Jesus and Concepcion Contreras, her life was defined by the love she showed her family and friends and those who's path blessed them with her company.
Her love as a Mother was unparalleled. She raised her children, Lori Marie Menendez (Quintana) and Gabriel Anthony Quintana with a love that knew no bounds. This was perpetuated to her Grandchildren Samantha and Ryan Menendez. She enjoyed hiking, and attending or contributing to her Church with her devoted husband Christopher Ortega. A beloved littlest sister, she would talk every day to at least one of her siblings, cousins, or the many that over the years, became indistinguishable between family and friends.
She was ever generous and spent her most valued time laughing, cooking, and talking with the many friends, family, and loved ones that found their way to her. She started the Military Moms of Tucson Organization to collect and donate supplies to deployed service members on behalf of local families. Steadfast in her faith, she would contribute to her church when able. She loved the splendor of the desert and throughout her life would often retreat to the hiking and nature trails that surround Tucson where Sanctuary Cove became a favorite.
