Young man meets 81-year-old he befriended on 'Words with Friends'

Young man meets 81-year-old he befriended on 'Words with Friends'

Spencer Sleyon (who allegedly raps under the name Half Empty) finally got to meet Rosalind "Roz" Guttman in West Palm Beach, Florida after the two spent over a year playing the ever-popular game "Words With Friends". The two had been playing the online game Words with Friends together for over a year.

And emotional photos show the friends sharing an embrace after Spencer flew to Florida to meet Roz. Find out more in the video above.

Still, while they may be all smiles in person, it sounds as though their games are fairly intense, with Spencer showing no signs of going easy on his pal despite being more than six decades her junior.

"I was like, yo, how do you know that word?"

'We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine.

Spencer said he had never been to Florida and thanked Ms Butler for making the meeting a possibility.

Words With Friends also called the story "amazing" on Twitter. "Words With Friends" heard about the in-person meeting and tweeted, "We can't get enough of this!"

The trip was arranged by Amy Butler, a pastor at a church in Manhattan.

Butler then chose to bring the two together, coordinating the meeting and flying down to Florida with Sleyon.

Here's to Sleyon, Guttman and great friendships-and all of the unlikely places from which they spring.
