Share

The two became long-distance buddies while playing the online game Words With Friends, where the octogenarian caught his attention by playing the word "phat".

Spencer, 22, flew from NY to Florida to meet his "Words With Friends" buddy Roz, who is 86 years old.

Although, Sleyon hadn't played "Words With Friends" for about a year, he still considered Guttman a good friend.

A young rapper has finally met his online gaming partner; an elderly woman who he had played more than 300 games with.

"Last summer I randomly met this [80-year-old] woman on Words with Friends", Sleyon tweeted soon after the meeting. "Today I got to go to Florida and meet her in person", he wrote.

Sleyon's tweet, and accompanying photos of the two embracing each other, have over one million likes and thousands of re-tweets - clearly, people love these two. A minister of a church in NY helped make the arrangements for the friends to meet in-person. Spencer, 22, posted pictures of their meet up to Twitter.

Words With Friends is a multi-player Scrabble-like mobile phone game which was launched in 2009.

She then added: "Sweet day today with Spencer and his #wordswithfriends friend, Roz, watching them bond in person for the first time".

Sleyon told The Root that Roz was his "best friend".
