How honest should I be with a distant friend?

I went from being very good friends with someone to having them kind of shut me out very suddenly, maybe not on purpose. I'm thinking about writing them a letter about this, but it feels kind of self serving. Does this sort of thing ever make sense? Lots of special snowflake inside. [more inside]
