Originally I was going to have Christening, Birthday, Wedding and then a Funeral but then decided to add an extra part between the Wedding animation and then Funeral as it seemed to be quite a drastic end that you have a wedding then die and nothing is come in between. So I added a Retirement stage, I could of gone down a range of avenues New Home, New Job etc.
My main object for this stage is a key. To represent a person giving back the keys to the work place. The reaction of the pen is that it is fully upright then goes to become horizontal to represent lying down and relaxing.
