This deeply affected four-year-old Jack, who would later say that Gerard followed him in life as a guardian angel. Kerouac also later wrote about the killing in his novel Vanity of Duluoz. Later, Kerouac lived with his parents in the Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens, after they had also moved to New York.
