You rated too soon, but I will provide your answer here. The best thing you could do to ease their minds, is inform your lady friend to draft a last will and testament detailing what is to happen with her estate upon her death. That document will be the best document to show them to ease their minds. The last will is the main document that is used upon someones death for the disposition of their property. If she drafts one, you could simply show the will to the children to show that they stand to inherit their mothers estate.
If you have follow up questions to the answer Robert, please feel free to ask them, and I will gladly address them!
