I was so sad to hear that Dr. Ferber had passed. What a great man with incredible integrity.
We met Peter and Gloria when they took our puppy, Barnaby, home with them to his new home. After meeting and speaking various times, we knew it was the perfect, loving home for Barnaby. We are saddened by Peter's passing and shall pray for Gloria and family. Please let us know if we may be of any assistance.
I've been a patient of Dr. Ferber's for the past 3 years. This transition has been very hard for me, therefor I cannot begin to fathom the heartbreak his family is going through. He was incredibally smart, worldly, and dedicated to his practice. It will be extremely difficult, if not impossible to replace him.
I met with Dr. Ferber only once, about three weeks before he passed. After our consultation, he helped recommend a medication for me. I was supposed to have follow-up visits, but they were not to be. I remember his manner and his impressive, delightful voice. Thank you, Dr. Ferber.
I feel honored to have met Dr. Ferber. I have known him both as a physician in the community to whom I referred patients, and as a psychiatrist who helped my own children through some rough times. When I chatted with him last in early June, I thought he looked tired and ill, but when i asked him when he thought he would retire, he replied in an animated voice "oh, in about a year". It was my priviledge to have known him, and I wish for peace and comfort to his family.
Dear Gloria and children:
Sorry to hear about your loss. Thinking of all our academic years together and success at helping families.

Peter Ferber was a gentle soul, an honorable man, and a respected colleague.
Gloria & Family,
I was so sorry to learn of Peter's passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I will never forget our trip to Egypt and Israel in 1989.
There are know words to descibe what I am feeling right now. To the Ferber Family, i am so deeply sorry for your loss. Dr. Ferber treated me for well over 10 years. I came to him lost with know hope in life. He made me realize how important I was as a person, friend,and most of all a mother! On our last visit I started to cry and I said thank you for saving my life! He replied you saved your life I just helped guide you!!!! I will miss you more then words could say!
Dr. Ferber, there are truly no words to describe how grateful I am to have had you in my life. I came to you as a broken person, merely a shell of myself. You helped me through the toughest time in my life and always made me feel that it would one day get better- and in time it did. Tolkein is my favorite author and perhaps my favorite quote from all his books is "this is the light of Elendil, our most beloved star, may it be a light to you in dark places when all other lights go out". You were undoubtedly the only light in my life during a very dark time. Thank you for all of your compassion, excellent medical care, and most importantly for just listening. I will miss you dearly.
Dr. Ferber treated both my daughter and son during difficult times. They would often speak of his kindness and sense of compassion. He always made them feel that "this too shall pass" and things will be better again. I always credit him for playing such a huge part in molding them into the happy adults they are today. Please know our family has your family in our prayers. I will always remember him with gratitude and thanks.
So sorry to hear of Pete's passing. Pete and I were friends
in our teen years. Although our paths had not crossed in all those years, I and others of our mutual friends often speak of him and have wondered how he was doing. He obviously led a wonderful life. My best to his fine family.
My name is Shawn, and I have been a patient of Dr. Ferber's for just short of three years. Dr. Ferber helped me more than any other Dr, therapist, psychologist I have ever worked with, and there have been quite a few. He could see through me like as though looking through the surface of a crystal clear mountain lake. I absolutely enjoyed my time with him and he will be sorely missed even though he challenged me from time to time, he made me a better man. Thank you Doc.
