Jeff Benedict: Deseret News Exclusive: ABC '20/20' special on 'Heaven' will include Mormon perspective
"I found her lovely, fascinating and articulate," Elder Walker said. "It seemed more like a conversation than an interview. Perhaps that's one of the reasons she's such a remarkable interviewer."
After the interview, Elder Walker gave Walters a brief tour of the building and walked along Columbus Avenue with her, which drew a crowd of spectators.
"Elder Walker was perfectly charming and delightful," Walters said. "I think he could convert anyone."
When it was time for Walters to leave, a cab pulled up to the temple to pick her up. A light rain had started to fall and Elder Walker instinctively grabbed a coat that he held above Walters like a makeshift umbrella. Then he escorted her to the car.
As she ducked into the back of the cab, Walters turned to him and said: "See you in heaven."
