4. Yes. It was the single most impactful event in my life

I was 13.
I suggest that you read up on emotionally neglected children. IMHO, many children who lost a parent become emotionally neglected, even if the remaining parent is still in the child's life. Even with the best of intentions, the remaining parent has to deal with his/her grief and sense of overwhelming responsibility.
When I first read some books about children of emotional neglect, I cried. It just rang so true for me.
