you said "your kids" so it must have been your significant other .
if that's the case , i'm sorry for your loss .
to answer your question , it depends on age . wait until they're about 15 16 then just tell them the honest story . if they're younger , cover the honest story with a heart attack or something along those lines .

Tell them the honest truth because if yoy lie to them. They will be mad and maybe act out and be mad.  Sure they may be upset but no matter what age as long as they are above 4 years old then they should understand.  Honesty comes before lying. Please done cover it up with a lie.
