When the block stops falling, we must inform the Game-Field class of this, so it can update its internal controls to allow the proper function of the IsEmpty method. We can do this by creating a new method, namedStopSquare, which will inform the GameField that a specific square is now not empty, and pass the square object and its coordinates as parameters. After that, each square will be treated separately from each other (no more blocks) by the GameField class, because when a line is removed, some squares of the block can be removed while others remain.
