I think that what she didn't take the time to explain was...
...that it wasn't you but her.
Cheryl probably has a lot on her plate at this time and is having to cut down on being social.
She should have eleborated more.
I think what you should tell her is that you realize that she has a lot of other directions her life is taking at this time, but you'd like to stay in touch--that, perhaps, it might be better (unless it's one of those times when you need to say something special) to simply stay in touch with a phone call and/or an e-mail about once-a-month.
Possibly, she is even going through a period of depression and has lost interest in everything. You might ask her how she's feeling these days and if there's anything you can do to help.
The important thing is to allow her to set the space limits at this time--within reason. Tell her that, whether or not you hear back from her, you're going to get in touch with her in a way that doesn't interrupt her time such as by e-mail or snail-mail. Visits, phone calls, IMs, and anything that would demand immediate attention would be off-limits coming from your side until she was ready for this.
Hope these suggestions help.

She just said...
that she didn't have time to be my friend anymore. I still think that there was more to it but I haven't had the nerve to ask. Maybe I'll e-mail her and see if she's changed her mind.

I'm so sorry for that.
I can't imagine how I would feel if that happened to me. Did she at least give any reason?
