Working with this man was a personal and professional privilege. His ego was always appropriate for the situation and his sense of humour was a delight. This is a sad day.

I was so sad when I heard of his passing. I used to work with him at AMH/Heart Hospital in Arlington. Dr Ferry was always nice to me. I still remember when he used to ask me “ Why are you still here” and I always answered “ To serve the American people” and I made him laugh.
You’ll always be remembered and loved Dr Ferry! Rest In Peace now!
Condolence to the whole family.

To the family of our beloved Dr Ferry,

On behalf of the numerous healthcare providers who worked beside your Husband, your Dad, your Son, your brother during his years at Arlington Memorial. Please accept our deepest condolences on such an extremely difficult loss...

He was every bit the Doctor that we caregivers loved to work with... his humor was not just welcomed, but often needed, as he lightened our hearts during the frequent stressful events we experienced. His bedside manner was stellar, he was a genuine soul, he really cared! Thank you for sharing him with us, and know that many of us are praying for you all.

May peace find a way to your hearts. Much Love from so many of us at AMH.

I worked with Dr Ferry at AMH when I began my nursing career in 1995. He was a always pleasant, understanding and approachable, which to a new nurse means the world! I am so glad I had the pleasure of working with him. My condolences.

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Mike about 15 years ago through a mutual friend and shared love of motorcycle travel. Over the years we've taken many trips together, a couple of them certainly qualifying as "epic." The experiences, and my life in general, were enriched by Mike's camaraderie and our growing friendship. He had extraordinary intelligence, dry wit and, most memorably, was just a great guy. He will be missed and remembered by me. My sincerest wishes to the family for comfort.

Of all the people I’ve interacted with in my life, Mike was at the top of my list. He was literally my best friend. We shared our pre teen and teen years together almost all the time. Our lifelong passion for motorcycles was what built our bond and I am forever grateful for God placing Michael in my life. He was so talented at life, his effortless dry humor and his natural way with human interaction was enviable. I loved him like a brother. I’m so sorry for this loss for his family and friends. RIP my friend.
