It sounds like he took his mom's death pretty hard and is still dealing with it now - he's not completely passed it yet. You admit he's not the same person you used to know so I think it would be wise to start from scratch. It's understandable that you want to be close with him but you can't push him for that until he's ready. If starting from scratch and just being casual friends, not close friends, isn't something you can handle (which would be understandable - it probably hurts that he's keeping you at a distance), you should cut ties with him and go your separate ways completely. You won't be able to rebuild anything if you want different things from each other.

A very belated welcome to the board, Catladie83 ~

I get the idea that you and this guy are fairly young, yes?
