There can be no doubt that Heather Ho, the award-winning pastry chef at the Windows on the World Restaurant on the 107th floor of the World Trade Center, had a sweet tooth. "We would go to a restaurant and she would order only the desserts," said Daniel Roorda, her boyfriend for the last two years. " But she was petite. She ate more than I did, and never gained a pound. I don't know how she did it. I think it's that her energy level was so high."

Ho, 32, came to Windows in June, but her dream was to open her own pastry shop, said Michael Lomonaco, the restaurant's executive chef. "In mid-August she gave me notice, but offered to stay until we could find a replacement."
