Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?

Are these sentences correct (and do they mean the same):

a) "Losing both your parents at one might have been very GRIEVING.

b)"Losing both your parents at one might have been very GRIEVOUS."

    One should be once, unless you mean aged one.

    Grieving means affected by a death - Grievous means very serious. 

    They don''t mean the same thing, but are feasible since being orphaned is perforce fairly serious.

    You mean "at once" and neither sentence makes sense. "Grieving" is an activity, not an adjective, and "grievous" doesn't apply in that sentence.  Also, "might have been" is logically a huge understatement.

    not one, once and both of your sentences do not make any sence
