First of all, congratulations Larry! It is quite an accomplishment to pay the entire mortgage off, many people never reach that point, so kudos to you. As for the documentation reflecting that you have completely paid off your mortgage, you should receive it 30-90 days after your final mortgage payment. This documentation could just be proof you paid it off or it could be a Deed of Reconveyance. It depends on where you are located, but most of the time you have to do the footwork and bring it to the county recorder's office to get ownership completely transferred to you. Congratulations again!
