I only say this from experiance, as when my dearest Mother in Law passed, her priest wanted to " send her away in catholic fashion " , and I said " no, just send one of those priests that are under you,"... he questioned me as to why, " I said, you believe Yourself to be her Shepard, but in actuality, from what I read of the scriptures, you missed the mark ". He, from what the parish wanted, was put up on a pedestal, and could not climb down, so he succumbed to it.
He sent another to appease me and honor her passing.
Ego should not play any part in the Craft, imho.
