Should I make contact with someone after a few years of not talking to them?

So I was just wondering if I should make contact with a friend(she was my best friend at the time). It's been about 3-4 years since I talked with her. I had to move to another state at the time, but she wrote me a note with her number on it. When I arrived at my new location I decided to hold off on talking with her(really dumb mistake). I'm not sure what it was but I would always hold off on talking to her. It's not like we ended on bad terms, but for some reason I just avoided it. Then after a few months I had lost the note with her number on it and so I just kind let it slide. Now fast forward to the present. One day I was on Facebook and just thought "why don't I look up my friend from a few years ago?" I found her Facebook and here I am. I don't know if I should try to make contact with her again or just let it go. It's been kind of bothering me since I was being a jerk and never talked to her again. The least I would do is apologize but I don't know if I should enter her life again. What do you think I should? Any help would be appreciated.

@cherryblossom40,
Why not? What have you got to lose?.Was there something emotional going on between you? Did she not know how to reach you...your telephone number?

Send her a note. on FB. What harm can come from it?

@cherryblossom40,
She gave you her number so you could call her, you'll never get your answer unless you do Smile

saying hello on FB is not entering someone's life

you don't know what's going on with her these days - she could have an entirely different life since you were last in touch

but yeah, say hi, it really isn't that big a deal

I've made contact with people I hadn't been in touch with for over 20/30/40 years. No one's life was changed as a result of the contact but it has been fun catching up.

Thanks everyone for your replies! I think I am going to message her, it would be nice to just contact her again and see what happens, it's worth a shot!
