December 3, 2017

A young rapper from Harlem has met with the 86-year-old Florida woman he befriended through an online word game, melting hearts across the internet says source.

Spencer, 22, got to meet 86-year-old Roz on Friday in West Palm Beach, Florida more than a year after the two met each other playing the Scrabble-like online game 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,’ Spencer wrote in a tweet about the meeting that has been re-tweeted over 220,000 times.

Roz lives in a retirement community in Florida and began playing Words With Friends with Spencer last summer.

Amy Butler, a pastor at The Riverside Church in Harlem, set up the meeting and flew to Florida with Spencer.

Spencer, who raps under the name ‘High Class Filth’, shared his record of matches with Roz, indicating he has won 210 out of their 324 games.

‘She was not crushing me boy don’t play with me,’ he noted.

Pictures of the online friends meeting joyfully in person for the first time quickly went viral, sparking an outpouring of emotional responses.

‘Sitting in a restaurant here totally choking up. My family’s like “what just happened to mom?”,’ wrote Jessica Webster.

‘I made a beautiful friend on WWF many years ago. I am American, she was from UK,’ wrote Patricia Cuxirimay.

‘We vacationed together here and in Perú. Then cancer took her a little over a year ago. So grateful for her presence, however short, in my life—and grateful you got to meet your WW Friend! God Bless!’ wrote Cuxirimay.

Butler, the pastor, helped broker the meeting after recounting the story of Spencer and Roz’s friendship in a sermon.
