LINCOLN --- Itâ€™s been nearly two months since Bruce Foster finished in a tie for second place with his brother, Jeff, at the 2011 Spartan Death Race, a 45-hour ultra-endurance test through a grueling 40-mile course in Pittsfield, Vt., but their accomplishment has still been the talk around Lincoln.

Itâ€™s universally true. When that time comes to saying goodbye to a parent or even a loyal pet, tears flow and emotions unravel. Many aging baby boomers, whether childless or empty nesters, have had pets who became their pampered â€śchildrenâ€ť or a closest faithful companion.
