My step kids won't be getting anything from my late DH

DH died a month ago. He left $750,000 in life insurance. We have a home and 2 cars which are in my name too so of course they go to me. The life insurance policy is set up to go to me. My SK think that they should get part of it. They are both grown, I have 2 kids with my late DH who are 3 and 6 so I feel that money should go to helping to raise them. My DH paid a crazy amount of child support plus took really good care of my step kids, bought them both a car on their 16th birthdays and put them through college (they got scholorships but he paid for everything the scholorships didn't pay plus helped them with living expenses). I feel that have gotten all they need/ should get from their dad already. Their father left them a few trinkets each but as far as money, he left them nothing. My way of thinking is that this money is just to give my children the same things that my late DH already gave my step children.

I know what I am going to do but I just wondered what other's opinions are.

What would you do?

    I think you are greedy, but since he didn't say give some of it to them, you are going to convince yourself it is justified.   I guess you are relieved that by doing this you will probably prevent a relationship between your kids and their half siblings.

    I would set up a college fund for the kids.

    If he provided so lavishly for them then they should get some of the money.

    They are adults and shouldn't expect anything.
