Young man meets woman, 86, he'd been playing Words With Friends with for a year

After their meeting, Sleyon tweeted these photos of him and Roz. Since then, they have played more than 300 games.

Spencer and Roz live more than 13 hours apart, he is from the USA state of Maryland and she lives in a retirement village in Florida.

Fox 5 reports that 22-year-old Spencer Sleyon, who lives in NY, flew down to West Palm Beach to meet 81-year-old Rosalind Guttman.

The pair have played more than 300 games of "Words with Friends" online together.

His tweet has been retweeted more than 147,000 times, including by the Words With Friends account, which replied: 'We can't get enough of this!

"So last summer I randomly met this 80yo woman on Words With Friends".

A Manhattan pastor heard about their friendship and helped them finally meet last week. A minister of a church in NY helped make the arrangements for the friends to meet in-person.

Sleyon and Rosalind Guttman met on Words With Friends over a year ago.

Words With Friends also called the story "amazing" on Twitter.

"She came to me weeks later and asked me how would I be interested in going to Florida for a day to meet her", Sleyon said. Butler decided to make the trip happen after hearing Sleyon tell her daughter about his virtual friendship.
