Spencer Sleyon, a Silver Spring, Md. who recently moved to Harlem to pursue rapping and producing, went down to Florida to meet with Rosalind "Roz" Guttman with the help of Rev. Amy Butler.

Spencer Sleyon is a young rapper who goes by the name Half Empty, and his new best friend is an 81-year-old woman in Florida named Roz. Thanks to the pastor of Riverside Church in Morningside Heights, they finally met face-to-face.

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!

A young man and an elderly woman who "randomly" met playing Words With Friends together online previous year and went on to share 324 games have now met up in person. Ms Butler arranged for the pair to meet face-to-face in West Palm Beach.

Spencer tweeted photos with Roz - and his post now has more than one million likes on Twitter. Yet the two became unlikely friends as they continued to play Words with Friends matches against one another. We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine. Butler decided to make the trip happen after hearing Sleyon tell her daughter about his virtual friendship.

"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.
