Hi!
you can also use sound/music to create a sad atmosphere.

I would use some flashback from the past, that would be - in the first impression - absolutely not bonded with the story, but after a close look you’d realize this is symbolic to the ending.

I was inspired somehow by the Ethereal Snake’s videos. They may come in handy!
