TWO online Scrabble players who faced each other over 300 times have met for the first time in a touching moment. Pastor Butler also took to Twitter to share the sweet story of Sleyon and Guttman's meeting and the story went viral on her page as well.

Spencer is a 22-year-old from Harlem, New York. He said he considered Roz "a good friend of mine" even before they got the chance to meet. And finally, last week, the unlikely duo got to meet in person in Florida after a pastor coordinated their meeting.

On Friday, the 22-year-old Spencer Sleyon - who, according to XXL, raps under the name Half Empty - flew 1,000 miles to West Palm Beach to meet 81-year-old Rosalind "Roz" Guttman.

"Last summer I randomly met this [80-year-old] woman on Words with Friends", Sleyon tweeted soon after the meeting.

After connecting through the online game, Spencer said he and Roz had played more than 300 matches together.
