(NEW YORK) -- Days after Robin Williams apparently took his own life, a New Zealander revealed his wife received a private message from the Oscar winner to try to raise her spirits. A chance to meet Williams was high on Vivian Waller's bucket list, along with getting married, seeing her daughter's first birthday, and turning 21.
A fundraising campaign led Vivian and her husband Jack to get married and have a honeymoon, but suffering from lung, bowel and liver cancer, the Sunday Star Times reports she was too ill to meet the star. Instead, her friends reached out to Williams, who sent her a brief but heartfelt message. "Hi Vivian, it's Robin Williams here saying, 'Hey girl, what's going on down there in New Zealand?'" the actor comments, affecting a convincing Kiwi accent. "I'm sending all my love to you, Jack and Sophie...knock this off your bucket list," Williams commented, before "channeling Matthew McConaughey" with an "alright, alright, alright." Williams signs off with "much love to you, baby."
According to the video posted on Stuff.co.nz, Mr. Waller shared the private message because, "we love him, we want to show people how awesome a person he was."
Unfortunately, Mrs. Waller's condition has worsened. Her husband decided not to share the news of the actor's apparent suicide with his ailing wife.
"We are just enjoying the time we have together. We take things a day at a time," he said.
