I'm trying to piece together his age. According to Flash issue 14, Barry's mom died 15 years ago, but how old was Barry 15 years ago? He looks like he was 9 or something, but I haven't been able to find the age he was when his mom died. It's not even shown in Flash issue 0...

Any info would help.

On March 18, 2000 when Barry was eleven years old, he ran home from school after getting into a fight. Though not being fast enough, his mother promised that he had a good heart, and his father was proud of him for winning the fight. Later that night Barry was comforted by his mother when he admitted he was afraid of the dark but she convinced him he wasn't afraid of darkness itself, just being alone in the dark and wished him sweet dreams. Later that night Barry was awoken by a commotion and went downstairs and saw his mother, surrounded in streaks of red and yellow lighting. Barry attempted to reach his mother but she told him to stay back and a midst the streaks Barry saw a yellow suited figure for a brief second, and his father told him to run.
