She Blew Him Straight to Heaven is a heartbreaking story of incredible loss. Lola Cross bears her soul in this true story about her life, her family, and the loss of her youngest child, Troy. She reminds us all that no matter how much time passes, or how old your children get, they are still the precious little angels that stole your heart the first time you gazed down upon them.
