Butler arranged for Sleyon to travel to Florida, accompanied by her, to meet his unlikely friend.

Sleyon jumped at the chance to meet Roz, and when they finally saw each other in person, their reactions were amazing.

"So last summer i randomly met this 80 y/o woman on ["Words with Friends]. We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine. Today i got to go to Florida and meet her in person," Sleyon posted on Twitter.


Sleyon was quick to point out that Roz was much younger than Butler originally mentioned.

He also made it clear that in no way was Roz outplaying him in the game.

The story of Roz and Spencer's friendship has been seen over one million times, and Butler is hoping it can inspire others.

“We’re living in a country divided by fear of the other, and people are longing for ways to connect," she said. "This story has two unlikely people becoming friends. It’s very beautiful and hopeful.”
