I was born Mac Kendree Miller, III, the eldest son of Mac Kendree (Buddy) Miller, Jr. and Elma Frances Robert Miller. Mother says it was a bright, warm, sunny day as is common in November in East Texas. I have two siblings. Both are alive and well, I'm happy to say. Carol Francis Miller Hudson and James Robert Miller, who we call Jimmy. Although separated by distance on occasion, we are a close family. Carol is two years my junior. She is a thoughtful and delightful person. My brother, Jimmy, is thoughtful, has a great sense of humor, a great deal of both artistic and musical talent, and may be the smartest of the three of us.
