"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.
