Although Sam and Lydia tried help pay for the funeral, they discovered Paul had taken a credit card out in Lydia’s name and left her in debt.

In last night’s episodes (Thursday, April 16) it was the day of Paul’s funeral. A hearse took Paul’s coffin to the church for the service, which was only attended by Vinny.
