Living in Arkansas, and my husband dies without a will

Question Details:

My husband died without a will and he had 4 children (my step kids) and I have 2 children. We owned 3 houses and had been married for 27 years. One of the children wants to take her dad's share; is that possible? And what happens if I die with a will and leave everything to my children? I I have given his children what they asked for. Can they ask for more? My house? My property that I paid for? He retired 13 years before he died and I continued working and didn't retire until recently. Do my children have anything left when they are done?
