Words make friends: Young rapper meets elderly gaming partner for first time

Over the weekend, thousands of people were touched as a 22-year-old shared his story of finally uniting with his 81-year-old game buddy in real life.

Spencer and Roz live more than 13 hours apart, he is from the U.S. state of Maryland and she lives in a retirement village in Florida. Because one Words with Friends player, Spencer Sleyon, has a good one.

"So last summer I randomly met this 80yo woman on Words With Friends". Photos of their reunion in West Palm Beach are just too heartwarming!

Spencer and Rosalind met for the first time over the weekend. A minister of a church in NY helped make the arrangements for the friends to meet in-person.

Last week, Sleyon tweeted about a friendship that originated over a year ago, when he and Rosalind "Roz" Guttman began playing Words with Friends with each other.

Spencer said he had never been to Florida and thanked Ms Butler for making the meeting a possibility. Yet the two became unlikely friends as they continued to play Words with Friends matches against one another. "Today I got to go to florida and meet her in person", Sleyon said on Friday in a tweet that now has over one million likes. Their first meet and greet was as sweet as you can imagine.
