"Words With Friends" pals meet for the first time

Spencer Sleyon and Rosalind formed a year-long bond over the popular phone app Words with Friends

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 is 22-year-old, and lives in NY.

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.

Although, Sleyon hadn't played "Words With Friends" for about a year, he still considered Guttman a good friend. Since then, they have played more than 300 games.

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

A Manhattan pastor heard about their friendship and helped them finally meet last week.

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

Ms Butler said she has used the example of their friendship in sermons, as Spencer is a friend of her daughter's. The tweet has since received more than one million likes.

The two were brought together by Rev. Amy Butler, a New York City pastor and the mother of a friend of Sleyon's.

Their meeting was made possible by NY pastor Amy Butler, who added: 'Sweet day today with Spencer and his Words With Friends friend, Roz, watching them bond in person for the first time'. Today I got to go to Florida and meet her in person'.
