NYC Council Member Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights, Elmhurst) and Jackson Heights residents gathered in front of Ho Flowers, as Dromm presented store owner John Ho with a citation honoring the memory of his late mother, Susan Lee.Lee established the shop with her husband in 1973, and managed it until May 30, 2016, when she passed away due to ill health.Born in South Korea, Lee emigrated to the United States in 1972 with her two children, including John Ho and his brother. Her husband opened up a wicker basket store in Jackson Heights in 1973. Susan Lee slowly introduced flowers and plants to the shop. By the early 1980s, the store was exclusively a florist shop. For many years, Lee supported her two children as a single mom, working long hours to pay for their college tuition.

Jackson Heights Flower Shop to Close After More Than 40 Years on 37th Ave. - DNAinfoMonday, March 06, 2017
Susan Lee, in a photo from the 1980s. View Full CaptionDNAinfo/Katie HonanJACKSON HEIGHTS — After more than 40 years selling bouquets and plants, and doling out advice, Ho Flowers and Plants is closing permanently.Owner Sue Lee died in May of a heart attack, after returning to work soon after suffering a stroke in 2010, her son, John Ho, said. She was 72.And although he learned a lot about the business from his mom, he won't be able to keep the shop open without her connections and eye for design, he said."You have to be an artist to do this," Ho, 46, said in the final weeks of the shop, as neighbors came in to say goodbye — many buying plants to remember both him and his mother. Ho tried to keep the store open, including letting a pop-up floral shop spend weekends at the store last fall. But he said he simply doesn't have the same passion for it his mom had.On Friday, Councilman Danny Dromm honored Lee's memory with a citation from the City Council, celebrating her life and business at the shop on 84th Street and 37th Avenue they moved into a few years ago...
2017 Valentine's Day gift and travel guide - Queens ChronicleTuesday, February 07, 2017
Men also have been taking an increasing market share in the fragrance industry. Ralph Lauren’s Polo Red and Diesel’s Fuel for Men are popular fragrances. Former Jackson Heights resident and now LA transplant Tara Durkin has an excellent men’s fragrance called Dossage 8.There are obviously thousands of perfumes for women. I am not sure how good it is but I have to chuckle at the name of House of Matriarch’s big seller, Sex Magic. That rivals the Sex On The Beach perfume from Long Island-based Demeter Fragrances, whose CEO is die-hard Mets fan Mark Crames. Safer name choices in the perfume world are Revlon’s Love Is On Eau de Toilette and Elizabeth Arden’s Always Red. Ralph Lauren makes a fragrance gift set that includes a box of Dylan’s Chocolates while Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb gift set includes parfum, shower gel and body cream. Lampe Berger Paris’ Cocoon Boxed Set contains has what it calls an Ocean Breeze Home Fragrance in a stylish satin glass case.Valentine’s Day, like Halloween, is a day when, barring serious health issues, we can look the other way when it comes to sugar consumption. Godiva and See Candies make tasty chocolates, but I have to admit to a special fondness for Ghirardelli’s peppermint bark and caramel squares. Chocolate Covered Cherries and Vermont Nut-Free Chocolates (vermontnutfree.com) are perfect for anyone who might have allergies to nuts of any kind. Josh Aryeh, a Queens Hatzolah Ambulance volunteer driver, started Fruits In Chocolate (FruitsInChocolate.com) just across the Nassau County border in Inwood, LI, three years ago. As the company name indicates, Aryeh’s company places pieces of fresh fruit inside premium dark chocolate. They are kosher and are sold at a wide variety of retailers.The southern part of the United States has always been known for great desserts. Brennan’s of Houston makes these soft praline pieces that remind you of the delicious fudge that you find in Atlantic City. Whoopie pies are a southern treat, but the sweetest that I have ever tasted are those frmo Wicked Whoopies (wickedwhoopies.com), surprisingly made in Freeport, Maine, a Portland suburb famous for its outlet shopping. Former investment banker Liz Fife recently started a New York-based company, Batter & Cream (batterandcream.com), that specializes in whoopie pies.Cheryl’s (cheryls.com) has a Valentine’s Day gift box of its popular cookies while Harry & David’s has gift baskets of its popular Moose Munch popcorn as well as its many other confections.Couples who are coffee drinkers and who don’t mind a touch of saccharine kitsch should purchase Care Bears his and hers mugs.For the spirits industry, Valentine’s Day ranks just behind New Year’s Eve in terms of sales numbers. Liqueurs such as Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur, Baileys Old Irish Creme, Kahlua and Baileys Salted Caramel and Bailey’s recent creation, Espresso Café Creme, are safe bets. France is renowned for red wine but Calvados Boulard is a fine brandy from its Normandy region. Ireland now has competition in the cream liqueur industry as evidenced by South Africa’s Amarula Cream.Sparkling wines such as France’s Lillet Rose and Italy’s Banfi Rosa Regale are also synonymous with romance. If you want a slight sweet touch to somewhat harder alcohol, try Smirnoff Wild Honey Vodka or Balvenie Caribbean Cork.If you prefer smooth over sweet, Glenfiddich 12, Macallan, Usquaebach and Johnnie Walker Black Label (the Blue Label will cost you over $200) are great options in the scotch whisky mark... http://www.qchron.com/editions/central/valentine-s-day-gift-and-travel-guide/article_4aa66bda-ed48-11e6-bf6c-63e4ccbee247.html

Keeb never wanted that. We ultimately decided to travel away, and we’re both very happy that we did. We didn’t have to go crazy with planning a huge wedding. We wish we would have hired a wedding planner. It would’ve been helpful to have someone more experienced and also more familiar with the area to assist us.
