PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The online game "Words with Friends" is credited with starting an unlikely friendship.

Spencer is a 22-year-old New York rapper who goes by the stage name "High Class Filth."

Roz is an 86-year-old woman who lives in a retirement community in Florida.

The pair met last summer when they were randomly squared up on "Words with Friends," an online game that is similar to Scrabble. Since then, they have played more than 300 games.

According to WALA, Pastor Amy Butler of the Riverside Church in Manhattan helped Spencer arrange a trip to Florida to meet Roz.

On Friday, Spencer and Pastor Butler traveled more than 1,000 miles to Florida, so Spencer could finally meet Roz in person.

Spencer tweeted photos with Roz -- and his post now has more than one million likes on Twitter.

Even "Words with Friends" is loving these photos.

They tweeted, "We can’t get enough of this! Amazing. Thank you for sharing your story with us."
